Knit Picky: One Talented Local Etsy Lady!

For any of you who might have missed my blog post on Forsyth Family blog on Monkey Toe Designs, Melissa is one great knitter who lives right here in Winston-Salem. I just placed yet another order from her!

I have a "thing" for sock monkeys, so both kids may be wearing these hats this winter (and ME)!
Today's featured artisan is Melissa Asbury of Winston-Salem. Melissa is a stay-at-home mom of two toddlers. Just after having her daughter in 2007, Melissa learned to crochet and while pregnant with her second baby, she taught herself to knit. Shortly after the birth of her second child she began Monkey Toe Designs Custom Knits for Kids.

Melissa has a great talent and her clothing is so adorable, photographers near and far buy her items as photo props for baby photography sessions. I have bought several pair of knitted mary jane booties, flower head bands, and even a few pair of baby "Uggs"-style booties as baby shower and birthday gifts. 

Some of Melissa's favorites from her collection include her tunics and rompers. Monkey Toe Designs can be found on Etsy, HERE and also on Facebook, HERE.
