Marie Grace, a home-schooling mom of 4, spends most of her time
surrounded by her family, books, and yarn balls. She learned to crochet
when she was very young but didn’t start knitting until she had kids of
her own. Nobody warned her that the desire to knit up a few baby

natural fibers are still her favorites and her designs reflect a
classic calm that is totally absent from her real life.
