    These days wool is probably more expensive, knitting is time consuming - if you know how- & every baby must look like a miniature 20 yr old or just match what mama is wearing. Some really gross clothing out there for babes & tots.

    Moving away from off-piste.... ;)

    I see that Kate was a "gloveress" in one of the censuses, a maker of gloves. I wonder if a 'pixie' was a type of glove....:reading:

    I am not sure we will get to the bottom of a Pixie Maker. I will look into glove making though and see if there is any connection. I do like the bonnet though.
