ONLINE—Knitwear designer (and Racked Young Guns Semi-Finalist!) Lindsay Degen has launched a Kickstarter in hopes of bolstering a new baby line. Aptly called babyDegen, the pint-sized product mimics the funky colors and patterns present in her adult-sized works. The additional funding will go towards improving customer service, packaging, and the online shopping experience. [Kickstarter]
