The Stocking Cap

Pink and brown are always gorgeous colours to go together, in my opinion anyway! This little hat makes a cute photo prop and was a very easy pattern to boot. It involves jogless stationary stripes and an icord to finish it off. A neat little pom pom can be used on the point or a […]

Day Owl..

I’m so very lucky that our new addition to the family has turned from a little night owl into a beautiful day owl. No more getting up through the night for numerous feeds and she’s not even 3 months old yet. I ended up getting inspiration from a pattern off Ravelry (but of course). I […]

5 Months later…

..and so much has happened! The most exciting being the birth of our beautiful daughter Willa. Having two girls is wonderful. Olivia just adores Willa and helps with everything. I’m quickly learning how to cope with 2 children instead of one and realizing that everything that you do takes twice the amount of time. This […]

Poppy Update

Since it took me nearly half an hour to get two measly rows of ribbing done and then still yet to cast off all with a toddler who wasn’t impressed that I was knitting, the little hat is finished. It’s really the sweetest of little things.

Poppy Hat by Justine Turner

This is such a cute little pattern that takes no time at all to knit up. It’s very reminiscent of a 1920’s flapper hat and on a baby or toddler I think it would be gorgeous. On Ravelry I’ve seen plenty of adult sized pics of this pattern but I think its the kids hats […]

Wishing Tree Bear

Yesterday afternoon I finished up the bear that I started a week or so ago to put under the wishing tree in our local Kmart. I love how it turned out and hopefully it will make one little person happy. Another project was also completed today and that was a cow lovey blanket for our […]

Baby Blanket Finished

Well that is the knitting side of it. It still needs to be blocked and backed with minky. The finished measurements are around 65cm by 65cm which is a great size to fit into baby’s capsule for when she arrives and perhaps as she gets a bit bigger as a snuggle rug. Just as a […]

Some nails…

Another little thing that I dabble in on the side is shellacing my nails. I first got them done professionally earlier on in the year then have done them at home every since. I admit I certainly can not afford the professional CND shellac but do use other brands. If I want to grow my […]

Update

So just a small quick update on my baby blanket with, what to me, is a funny and frustrating story. Towards the end of my 2nd skein, I seemed to of lacked an awful lot of concentration as I made so many mistakes it was just getting ridiculous. The first one I only realized after […]
