Giveaway & Review: From Mama, With Love

Have you heard of this new gem of a pattern book? It’s called From Moma, With Love. It’s a beautiful assembly of knitting patterns by 5 extremely talented designers – and mamas:  Connie Chang Chinchio, Tanis Gray, Margaux Hufnagel, Melissa La Barre and Kate Gagnon Osborn.

So, what do I love about this book? There’s quite a few things actually, but let’s start with the most important – the patterns.  There’s a really nice variety of sweaters, vests, hats and blankies and how about that awesome boppy cover? Talk about an awesome shower gift idea for a new mom!


Patterns (Left to Right, Top to Bottom): Petunia’s Blanket, Ronan Pullover, Seed Stitch Boppy, Kearney HatKyle Vest, Lulu Vest, Sid Scrappy Hat, Velvet Hoodie, Viviane Cardigan, Debonair Hat, Ferris Vest, Isadora Lopapeysa, Antonia Blanket, Bluebell Pullover, Callum Vest

I also really love how personal this book feels, you can certainly tell it was a labor of love by all 5 authors.  One of my favorite things about it are the cute little nuggets of parenting advice along with the patterns.

For example:

From Tanis Gray:
Q: “What’s the best parenting advice you’ve ever received?”
A: “Not every day wil be rosy, but take each day as it comes, learning from both their and your mistakes and try again tomorrow….”

Well said, Tanis!

  1. Because I love knitting blankets, I would have to pick Antonia. How beautiful those classic cables would be in the rich browns of Dockside or Nutmeg!

  2. Viviane cardigan in Nantucket for sure. Such a cute collection and the nice and knit colorways are perfect for it! Hope I win!

  3. I would knit the Petunia’s Blanket pattern, since my daughter’s nickname is Petunia, and I’d use the Vineyard colorway for the pop of color among the neutrals, since purple is her favorite color. :)

  4. I would love to knit the Kyle vest in Vineyard (tough decision as they all would look nice!) for my newest niece. I make baby hats for part of my church baby shower gift and would love to have these three hat patterns to add some new designs to my collection.

  5. I would knit up the Debonair hat in Nantucket because he looks so cute in it and I love Nantucket ~ the yarn & the island!

  6. I would love to knit my sweet daughter, Claire, the Viviane Cardigan in your Lobster Pot color-way. Her birthday is in September but she was supposed to be an October baby (she came about 4 weeks early). So, I didn’t get my little pumpkin baby but I LOVE fall and in Michigan the fall colors are so beautiful. I think this cardigan would look gorgeous outside for her 2 year old pictures this coming September in northern Michigan!

    I love your blog and have found so many beautiful projects and inspiration through your posts and photos.

    The new yarns are gorgeous and I can’t wait to work with them very soon!

    Thank you for your time,

  7. I would love to knit the Antonia Blanket or the Debonair Hat both in the Vineyard color way! It’s such a pretty color!!

  8. My granddaughter would look just beautiful in the Viviane Cardigan in Vineyard. Thanks for the chance to win.
