Custom handknit keepsakes

Let me knit for you like my grandmother knit for me.

Back in the 1950’s, my grandmother offered to knit me a pink cardigan with an angora kitten on one side and a yarn ball on the other.  I preferred the red sweater on the other side of the pattern leaflet, the one with a dog on one side and a doghouse on the other.  She knit me what I wanted, and I loved that sweater to shreds!

I would love the chance to work with you to knit something you want, just the way you want it.

Yuletide Stockings & Ornaments

My favorite things to knit are holiday stockings and ornaments using stranded colorwork. I would love to work with you to create your own unique design.

Vintage Stockings

Yes, I can copy stockings that are traditional in your family! Commission a matching stocking to welcome a new member to the family or duplicate a beloved heirloom that has degraded over time.

Matching knitwear

Handknits are beautiful and practical gifts! And matching handknits show love and connection.

In addition to matching sibling knits, I also make Mommy & Me knitwear, child-and-doll matching sweaters, and newlywed couple knitwear (which can include a wedding date discretely knitted into an interior band!)

About the Bespoke Grandmama

Genevieve Edwards is the grandmama to two grandchildren who are the frequent recipients of beautiful handknits. She learned to knit as a child and picked it up again when her children were grown. Since then she’s been knitting, weaving, and inventing patterns, including a “best design” winner at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool festival. She now lives in Verona, Wisconsin.
