> About Me

I am a mother of 6 and a grandmother of 10.  I have always knitted,  having been taught at a young age by my mother who knitted picture jerseys professionally.  I have knitted professionally for the last 50 years with some garments going to Australia,  England,  Scotland,  Germany,  the USA and Japan.

I love knitting for babies - the patterns are just so gorgeous.  I noticed that there are very few shawls available anywhere so I decided to make some as I am sure that other people probably have difficulty sourcing the traditional intricate designs which often became family heirlooms in earlier days.

All NannyMaid products are hand knitted with loving care by me personally in a smoke-free and pet-free environment and I use only pure baby wool merino for softness and warmth without noticeable weight or allergenic risk.

I hope you find something here that is just what you have been searching for and I look forward to having the opportunity to trade with you.
