Knit by Alicia REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

Are you a photographer looking for adorable newborn props for your photo shoots?  Or are you a mom to a newborn, trying to get some adorable pictures of your new pride and joy?  Or a mom that would love to have some adorable hats for you sweet baby or toddler??

If you answered yes to any of those questions, I have the PERFECT etsy site for you to check out and start making your "wish list!"  Alicia, the store owner of Knit by Alicia, has an incredible talent for knitting adorable products!  Her etsy profile page states: "I am a stay at home mom who loves to knit. my local yarn shop know me by name, and I love knitting with luxurious yarns." She knits her hats with hand-spun merino wool. She also loves working with cashmere, angora, bamboo, blue sky alpacas, and organic cotton.  She also makes hand-knit hats for toddlers as well!  She is quite talented in knitting newborn photography props and accessories!

She graciously sent me a newborn hat to review and one to give away to a faithful Go Long! Go Green! reader!

I was so impressed with the packaging when it arrived promptly in the mail.  So professional!
  


Sugar plum nb hat
When I opened the bag, I was extrememly impressed with the workmanship.  The hat was incredibly soft and it has great texture.  Talk about a hat to snuggle up to ... it is that soft!!  The stitches are even and consistent for a great overall appearance.   The high quality stitching also will help it to "wear well" in the long run and keep its shape.   The merino wool is a very high quality natural fiber and is quite breathable, which makes it more versatile for a variety of types of weather!

I love how the dark purple bow contrasted the purple/pink/white wool colors!
Cute care tag with instructions inside as well as a description of the yarn used.

Here are a few other of my favorite items in her shop:

Natural double pom NB hat

 
Rainbow NB hat
Natural cocoon - have you seen newborn pictures a cocoon?  They are adorable! Check out Alicia's FB page for pics!
Lime green and blue NB hat

If you don't see a color combination you prefer, just email her and she is always up for custom orders.

Also, the pictures I took don't do her work justice.  You have to check out her facebook page of all her hats and other knitwear on actual babies!!  The professional pictures she has on her FB page will MELT YOUR HEART!  Head over and check them out ... HERE
