Welcome to Angela of Pumpkin Pie Baby!
Angela is our featured artisan this weekend and she is giving away 
2 adorable girly knitting patterns to a lucky winner!
Tell us a little about how your business began:
When my second daughter was born, we had a lot of changes going on in our lives.  I left work to stay at home with my children and we were preparing to move to another state.  We also began cloth diapering.  I needed a creative outlet and began crocheting longies, shorties and soakers for my daughter.  I also taught myself to knit.  After we moved, I opened Pumpkin Pie Baby online, just about 4 years ago now.  I began by offering crocheted cloth diaper covers, but then expanded into offering knitted ones and crocheted play foods.  About a year ago, I ventured into designing and that's currently where most of my energy is focused right now.
 What are your current joys or inspirations in your business?
There are really endless possibilities with knitting.  The way you can combine yarns, colors, textures, shapes.  I'm enjoying trying new yarns and stitch patterns.  I love seeing what others make with my patterns.  And my biggest joy is how much my children love the things I make for them.  When I knit and crocheted things to sell, my girls always seemed a little sad that it wasn't for them.  Now, they really get excited that I made something just for them.

Tell us about a favourite family activity in your home.
At home, we love dance parties.  My kids love to dance and they're really uninhibited about it all.  It's so much fun to watch and dance with them.  Outside of the house, we love trips to the beach.  We're lucky to live 10 minutes from the ocean so we'll go year round as long as it doesn't get too cold.  There's always so much to look at and find and explore.

The Giveaway
The Lucia Sweater is a seamless raglan sweater for babies and girls knit from the top down and in the round. The lacy body and short sleeves make it the perfect layer over a long or short sleeved T. It is available in 6 sizes. The pattern also includes instructions for 3/4 sleeves.  More information HERE.

The Lucia Hat is lacy and close-fitting. It is knit in the round with an easy lace pattern perfect for beginner knitters but interesting enough for more advanced knitters too. It comes in 5 sizes from newborn to adult.  More information HERE.

The Lucia hat is adorable (and I know a couple of little girls who could make it even more so)! The Give Thanks mittens look like they'd be fun to knit. Thanks for the chance to win!

Many thanks for the giveaway offer.

I absolutely love the Lucia pattern. I'm knitting my second right now. :). Of course, if I were to be the random winner, I'm sure I know someone who would benefit from a pattern pick-me-up.

I've read great things about the Lucia sweater, and the hat pattern has been on my mind for a couple weeks.
