I’m Tara, and Lakeside Knits co was born in 2016 when my daughter Andie was a baby. Being home on maternity leave left me wanting to do something for myself. My grandmother taught me how to knit when I was about 10 years old, and decided to pick up my knitting needles and start making toques for my kids, friends and family. After a bit of encouraging from friends and family to open up an Etsy shop, my hobby kind of unintentionally turned into a full-fledged at-home business, and here we are today, years later. Everything you see here is handcrafted, meticulously made with a whole lot of love. I love creating modern knitwear for mamas and kiddos!!
