Open for business!

Hubby and I have been hard at work designing and programming my new site for several weeks now and are thrilled to report that it's {finally} ready and open for business! Be sure to check it out at www.jujubeandlolo.com


Isn't it pretty? I'm really proud of how it turned out and hope you'll like it too. The whole thing was completely home grown. I created the look and content and roped my dear husband into translating all my ideas into something a computer would understand! We made a great team and really put everything we had into it. And of course, the kidlets were heavily involved also as the inspiration, yarn enablers, and models ;0)

Hickory Dickory Dot
The mouse went up the...sweater?
All toasty and warm
In his polka dot hom
His mousy heart was aflutter ;0)


The site will be the new home of all my original knitting patterns going forward: premium patterns for sale, benefit patterns for a cause and free patterns just because! There are ten patterns up now including my favourite so far, Hickory Dickory Dot.



This cute little sweater is available in sizes from 3 to 24 months and features a lap-shouldered construction (they are so wonderful and practical for onesies I figured why not a sweater?) and a pocket mouse to play with. Because what can be better than a warm woolly with a built-in toy?


The pattern also includes step-by-step photo tutorials on knitting a hem closed, making i-cord, and sewing i-cord to neckline. More pattern info here.

If you are interested in obtaining a kit complete with the pattern, the delightful Karabella Aurora 8 (the same yarn I used), and even a squeaker for the mouse, check out Bella Knitting where you can also get complete kits including pattern yarn and notions for the Peace Baby sweater and Buddy Bags.

Happy knitting!

  7. You have such a great sense of style and color I'm excited to see how you are using that to create a really beautiful site. I don't have any little ones to knit for but I still want to make all of your creations.

  8. Your site looks awesome. I love the patterns (for everything)! First on my list will have to be Hickory Dickory Dot - what baby (or mommy) wouldn't want to recieve that. I love the idea of a toy inside the pocket. Will have to order the pattern soon.
    Thank you, and I hope it's a very successful venture for you :-)

  22. Good post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It should at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and follow a bit something from their store.
