If you want something that doesn’t exist, create it!
As a first-time mom, and as a mother in general, you only want what’s best for your child. As a I became a single mother when I was 22, my money sector took a big toll and it turned into a crucial aspect to factor in.
Consequently, for someone in their early 20’s who makes an executive assistant salary, it was a difficult challenge to find and purchase the best apparel fibers for babies. However, I was adamant towards offering my son the best, so that was when I shifted my paradigm.
Since I couldn’t afford any luxurious predesigned clothes for my child, I decided to take matters into my own hands and I started knitting them myself!
When I knit the clothing myself, I’m the only one who decides which thread I’m going to use, which type of fabric, the color palette, design and so forth.
I even started knitting matching designs for me and my son to wear! I got to say, those ones have a special place in my heart.
During the early stages of my knitting journey, I discovered something truly important. Knitting is not merely a way to create a sleek design that would impress others. Knitting is the way through which I could create memories about my dear ones. Knitting offered me a safe place where I could express my creativity, cultivate my patience and earn much more than some lavish garments.
And I wanted other people to feel the same magic that I experienced when I saw my son wearing my designs.
Hence, I started House of Pumpkin. I wanted to make sure that through my designs, which are destined both for children and for the entire family, but also through my knitting lessons everyone could achieve that ethereal feeling of serene moments spent with dear ones.
