For those of you late to the party, I am loving my toque from local knitwear company ilex. every. day. Holly’s tagline is “beautiful things thoughtfully made” and it’s so true! She loves making beautiful knit and crocheted things for people to wear. Everything in her shop is handmade and designed by her, unless specifically noted. She also gives credit to pattern designers whose work she’s borrowed, so if you’re a crocheter yourself and you find something beautiful, you’ll be able to replicate it using their pattern. All of her materials are high-quality and traded fairly. Many are manufactured in the USA or Canada, and those sourced from exotic locations are strictly Fair Trade. With every purchase, you are supporting local, sustainable production practices. Also when you purchase an Ilex product, you’ll receive a complimentary “Story of Me” card, detailing where the materials in your product originated. See something you like, but want it customized? Simply send her a message, and she will work with you to make your vision a reality! For more info about Holly and her creations please check out my blog post about her company.
