Lupine Knits

  • Retail


Located in central Maine, Lupine Knits is a locally owned custom knitting business which offers a variety of hats, mittens, sweaters, and socks. I love to knit, but more importantly I LOVE TO KNIT!! I knit custom knit hats, custom knit mittens and custom knit socks using unique textiles.

After moving to Maine in 1988 and having children in 1989, 1990 and 1995, my goal was to stay home and raise a family. I learned about knitting machines and contract knitting, and then started my own knitting business, Made Especially For You.

The winters in Maine are challenging at times, so knitting was a way to relax and regroup. The more I knitted for other businesses, the more I wanted to design and knit for myself. Over the years I have sold machines and given knitting classes and working at house parties where you could custom design your own garments. I now only knit for my business, and sell at the The Lupine Cottage in Belfast, ME and through my website.

The Lupine Cottage is my dream, and I spend a lot of my time there. I have a machine at the shop that allows me to produce, demonstrate, and teach what I do.
