Hearts for My Mum

6 May

My mum is going through a rough patch so I’ve decided to knit her something. I’m using some leftover yarn, so I have to make the socks short, otherwise I won’t have enough for two. I included hearts in the design, so she knows how much I care for her…

Here is the first sock I just finished. Knit toe-up.


Manly Socks

5 May

I had to go on a trip to France last week and decided to take an easy, mindless project with me for the train ride. So, I made this pair of men’s socks in bamboo sock yarn. They are simple, but I think they are pretty nice men’s socks.

I made them two-at-once on one circular needle, toe-up.

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.

Spring Has Sprung Pattern is Available

15 Feb

I wrote this pattern especially with bamboo yarn in mind. I wanted to design a spring hat with a girl and a boy version and bamboo yarn makes me think of spring. It has a lovely shine to it that reminds me of sunny spring days.

The body of the hat is identical in both versions. The girl version includes a little bracelet, just for fun!

Note: this pattern is for both boy and girl versions

Pattern costs $3.75

Knitting in the round, Kfb, picking up stitches, Kitchener stitch

Spring Beanie Pattern Soon to be Published

My testers are hard at work and, thanks to them, I should be able to publish the pattern very soon, I’m hoping before the week-end. Here are some of their versions, the boy version is not finished yet:

And we Have a Hat

4 Feb

The baby set’s hat is just finished, I can now get working on the vest. I decided that the vest would be in a plain colour matching the booties and hat as I think it would be a bit too much to have three pieces in this same yarn.

Here are a few pics, I don’t have a baby at hand for modeling, so this baby does a lot of the modeling around here!
