Getting to Know Kids' Precious Couture & Dianira Soto...
"A little bit about me... I used to spend my summers at home at a very young age learning how to crochet from my mother. I still have my very first pink Barbie blanket I crocheted at the age of 8! I’d watch my grandmother make all the grandkids quilts and the cousins matching outfits to wear for the holidays!! Of course as a kid, we were all mortified to be wearing matching outfits!!! But as an adult, I realize all the love that went into each of those stitches and the endless hours she spent at the sewing machine making us so many beautiful items!! I never sat down with my grandma to teach me how to sew but I remember asking my mother to buy me my first sewing machine in 6th grade! Probably around this time is when my neighbor taught me how to knit. I’m not really sure when I stopped.
About 10 or so years ago I picked up a Vogue knitting book at a work book faire and decided I wanted to make this gorgeous cable-knit sweater. I remember signing up for a knitting class at a local store because I hadn’t knit in well over 10 years and nobody had ever taught me from a pattern book. So the lady tells me that I can’t make the sweater because a cable pattern is the hardest thing you can start with. Oh the challenge!!! I was done with my first cable-knit sweater in less than a week and I couldn’t understand what was so hard about it!! I moved onto making tons of baby blankets, coats for friends, scarves, etc.. Then I stopped again. Made some blankets, beanies, and sweaters for my own little babies and then life of a working mom on-the-go took over.
A year ago a local photographer found out I knit and my life changed. I am back to knitting and crocheting!! Making things I never thought I would be making! And making my own designs, which is amazing to me, never imagined I would be doing my own designs!!
Life is busy to say the least, I’m the mother of two smart, beautiful children and juggling a full-time job outside the home and making these wonderful little baby hats and blankets is challenging some nights! But someday I would love to be doing this full-time and calling my full-time job my part-time work!
For now I’m happy with how things are moving along and trying to keep building it up!
As for my inspiration, it hits at any given moment. For example some months ago I was at my neighbors' sons' 1st birtday party bash and she had this amazing Cookie Monster cake and I'm looking at it and looking at each little strand of frosting and it hit me! I'm going to make a Cookie Monster hat!! The other day driving around with my husband brain storming of items I can make that go together the Trash Can for the Cookie Monster came to mind. Stay tuned because it's coming!! There's not one thing in particular that inspires, happens at any given moment. Who knows I might be making soccer hats next week since my kids start soccer practice! :)
