Another Spaceman Nicolino for Nicolas

26 Nov

Last year, I gave the prototype I knit for my Spaceman Nicolino to Nicolas, who gave his name to this pattern. He was a newborn then. His mum liked it so much that she asked if I could knit him one for this winter as the first one is way too small now. So, here it is, modeled by my 6-year old (hopefully it won’t be too big for Nicolas).

I created my Cowboy Booties pattern for a Texan friend of mine who was expecting a baby girl. Yesterday, I finally got to see pictures of the booties modeled by their intended recipient, lovely Miss Avery 😀

New Pattern: 2-in-1 Easy Swaddler

29 Mar

My easy swaddler is now published. Thanks to one of my testers, I even have a picture “in action” 🙂

When my boys were babies, I tried using swaddling blankets, but they just wouldn’t stay on. So, I bought a couple of specially shaped swaddling blankets, which inspired me to design this pattern. The idea of the pattern is to be able to use the item when the baby doesn’t need swaddling anymore. So, it’s in two pieces; one independent sleeping bag, onto which the “wings” attach to create an easy swaddling blanket.


Pattern costs $4.00

More details on the pattern are available on Ravelry:

My First Longies

15 Mar

So, after all these years of knitting, I still had to knit longies. These are not finished yet, but pretty advanced now. They will be for a friend’s baby boy to be born in the summer. I’m making them in a 100% bamboo yarn, that should be appropriate for the summer weather.
