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.

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 😀

Traveling Cushion Cover

9 Jun

I took part in a traveling cushion cover on Ravelry after I had taken part in a traveling scarf journey. It is lots of fun to see what people came up with. I just got all my squares back. I assembled them all and am now working on the back of the cushion so I can finish it. Here’s a little preview…

Project Yarnway – March Challenge

8 Mar

I already made my Tee Rose hat for this challenge but thought it might not be innovative enough for the challenge.

Tee Rose

3 Mar

This is my new hat, Tee Rose. I’m taking part in a challenge on Ravelry called “Project Yarnway“, it’s based on the famous TV series Project Runway. We have monthly challenges. This month’s challenge is “Innovation”, where we have to use non conventional materials.

For this hat, I used two old tie-dyed t-shirts, here are some pics of the hat and what’s left of the two t-shirts

Cowboy Booties Pattern is Available

13 Jan

After a little wait, I can now announce that the pattern for the Cowboy Booties is available. Thanks to the very valuable help from my testers I can now offer a smooth pattern.

Pattern costs $5.00

These booties will make a perfect baby shower gift, and not only for Texan babies!

They have an internal bootie with ribbing at the ankle (cannot be seen when worn). The boot part is added onto it, so that it will stay on baby’s feet.

Necessary skills to make these are: knitting in the round, picking up stitches, Fair Isle knitting
The colour work is charted.

More details on the pattern are available on Ravelry:

Pattern in 2 sizes: 0-6 months & 6-12 months
