A knitter who has recently expanded her avocation into vocation, Beth Kamienski creates handknit lingerie and baby goods under the playful business name Babes in Stitches. “I'm just getting going with this endeavor of mine,” she says.

She’s obviously not new to knitting, however, as her well-crafted and sometimes surprising original creations attest.
