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).

Scarf & Mitts Set

24 Nov

I finished this set recently for a present. Two garter stitch-based patterns which go well together.

The scarf is “My Garter Slipped Scarf” and the fingerless mitts are the “Garter Stitch Mitts”.

The yarn is Melinda by Woll Butt.

Quite Proud…

2 Jul

For two reasons, first it’s crochet and it’s a new craft to me and, second, I sewed the lining inside the bag and that is quite a challenge for me! I really like the finished product, a cute little bag! It was a test for the designer.

Cowboy Booties Modeled

24 Jun

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 😀

Crocheted Market Bag

14 Jun

I’m working on improving my crochet skill. I taught myself to crochet a few years ago but haven’t had so many opportunities to improve since. So, in order to do just that, I’m trying to take on increasingly challenging patterns.

My latest project is a market bag, made out of a 100% cotton yarn. Pattern is free and is here.

A Quick In-Between Project

1 Jun

Yesterday, I made a little cap in crochet as a test for the designer, it’s a really quick project, it took me about 2 1/2 hours to make. The pattern can be found here. I made it in a 100% cotton yarn.

Here it is, modeled by my 4-year old – he enjoyed the photo shoot 😉
