    I really loved your stall! Such lovely designs and samples. I didn’t to chat with you Emily but I did chat with your husband – what a helper! Oh, and I did almost photo-bomb you but you were gracious enough to let me pass ;) Congrats on a successful market stall!

    It was lovely to meet you and thanks for signing my book, I am so sorry I thought your daughter was a boy, I am honestly not a ‘pink for girls, blue for boys’ sort of person!! Looking forward to knitting your patterns.

      Alexa doesn’t mind that her daughter Hunter is known, on the internet, as ‘the cutest boy ever’. Babies are androgynous!
