This beanie was a free pattern from Coloradomoms Skater baby brim hat. Knitted in Aran weight 10 ply it looks better in their plain wool I think but tweed was all I had at the time
I really like the Sublime Swing Coat pattern used for this red cardigan and their Plum Beret hat pattern. The pink and green sheepskin soled booties are from the post on 4th August 2012. Sheepskin Soled Bootee Pattern . The pink singlet is from a free online pattern, ‘Dear Wee Singlet’, by Justine Turner. The brown vest is the Henry vest from Sublime.
I set myself a bit of a challenge, trying to combine an embellished crazy quilt for a cot but at the same time incorporating some appliqued African animals in the colours of red, grey, yellow and turquoise. At times I doubted it was going to come together but in the end I’m very happy with how it worked out. Roll on this little girl’s arrival in July.
Lots on this month but I have managed to knit a teapot cosy for a friend. I like the three pom poms on top.
I’m getting a jump on knitting things for our very cute grandson before the cold weather sets in. The red ’Sublime Henry Tank’ is knitted with a ‘check pattern’ and six stitch cable, I’ve used Burda’s 9792 sewing pattern for the shirt. The Hoodie is another Bernat Hoodie which is a free pattern found on ‘favecrafts’. This time I made it in the ’tile stitch’ which was also a free pattern online. Thanks to all those who share your creativity with the rest of us
Making my little sister’s wedding cake was pure fun, probably because she was so relaxed about the final outcome. My favourite cake recipe is a mud cake recipe which never fails and gives a good base to work with. A sample of the theme material gave inspiration for the purple and blue flowers and the painted tiles on top and musical note cut outs brought in their love of the arts and music. Thanks for sharing your very special and fun day with us
I acknowledge that two cool mornings and and a sprinkle of rain doesn’t mean that winter is imminent but one hasto have something on the needles! I really, really like using this Sublime ‘Henry Tank’ knitting pattern and also thought the ‘burda 9792′ shirt pattern was easy to follow.
