There are numerous ways you can personalize your little house to make a truly one-of-a-kind gift to celebrate a new baby, an adoption, a baby's first Christmas, a wedding, a first home, a new home, Christmas, Valentine's Day and even...the Olympics!
When I was designing this pattern and showing the samples to my friends and family....every person smiled. I hope you enjoy creating a little house to show your love for "home" and the special people in your life. (And, you probably won't make just one because they are so fun to knit!)
The pattern includes lots of photos and detailed instructions to make all versions of The Little House shown in the last photo of this listing.

I have been knitting since I was about 8 years old. My mother taught me to knit and my parents encouraged me to explore all kinds of arts & crafts activities by providing me with the materials that I needed to create.
As a girl, I loved to sew (I spent hours using my mother’s sewing machine making clothes for my dolls), knit, draw and paint. In high school I spent all my extra time at school hanging out in the art room. In college I worked at a cute little yarn store and I still have some yarn in my stash that I bought at that store…way too many years ago!
I love giving hand knit gifts to my friends and family. In these days of mass produced gifts (that often require a plug-in cord or battery) it is nice to give something that is truly one-of-a-kind. I love to see the smile on their faces when they open the gift I made for them.
I enjoy knitting (of course!), teaching my daughter to sew, going to my son’s sporting events, baking, making jam in the summer, making homemade gingerbread houses in December, and going to the beach.
I hope that you enjoy using my patterns to create special heirloom quality items for your home, friends & family.
