Simple beanie


A simple beanie modeled here by 'Tiger'.  I finished a while ago to go with the Milo vest but it not gifted as it looked too big to fit a three month old.  The pattern is called 'All ears' and is available for free from Ravelry. Quick, easy but really not very useful if it doesn't fit!

Another Olearia off the needles

I've mentioned before how much I love this pattern, Olearia, by Tikki (Georgie Hallam).  It seems to be one of my 'go to' patterns for little girls and with two boys, I don't need many of these but it is perfect for gifts.  Again this is made with squishy, soft Woolganics yarn which is wonderful to knit with.  Untitled

Cambie Make this look

I love Sacha Drake.  I have also been known to have champagne taste but need to live on a cordial (not even beer!) budget.  I have fallen in love with her latest collection and when I saw her Millicent dress I instantly thought of the Cambie pattern, a new release from Sewaholic.  Sacha makes hers from a cotton sateen fabric which is a perfect match for the design and I think the fabric pattern is what makes this dress a stand out.  If you ever come across similar fabric, please let me know as I'd love to make this for my summer wardrobe. I love the Nine West shoes, not practical but hey this is my dream board.  The red rose fabric is from Tessuti

PS: The Millicent dress is sold out online so obviously I have great taste!

It has been  a quiet couple of months here craft-wise.  Busy on the home and work front though with any spare, usable hours spent knitting rather than sewing as it is much warmer on the couch than in the spare room.

Here is a little beanie I made for Jordan a couple of months ago and a cold weekend down near Warwick provided the perfect opportunity for some modeled shots. 

It was an easy knit, but high on the cuteness factor. 

The wool was acquired through a swap on Ravelry and was perfect for a simple beanie like this.

The pattern is called "Tubey" and was designed by Woolly Wormhead.
