Gorgeous new delights

I have over the past couple of weeks had the delivery of a few delicious yarns. Some were updates on Facebook that I just could NOT go past so had to have them. 1 lot is a custom order from Lanie at Forest Hill Hand Dyed Yarn on Facebook who by the way NOW has her own Etsy shop 😉 I will explain them all to you. *loves them*

The following balls of deliciousness are a custom order with Lanie. I am so much in love with them. The photo of Aqua sky doesn’t truly represent it’s beautiful colours.

I sent Lanie photo’s of gorgeous skies and Autumn leaves to recreate for me and I am so thrilled with the results !

I also bought 2 Balls each of 4ply, 8ply and 10ply in cream wool at Bendigo Woollen Mills to try and dye up myself with some natural colourings. I bought some beautiful primary colours in Natural food dyes and when the kids give me some moments I will attempt some myself. So exciting !!

The blank canvas for my pleasure ;)

I know I was very naughty and I’d love to say I won’t buy any more but that’d be a lie 😛

I did just buy two more hahaha but they are not here yet 😛

Here they are… Once again from the lovely Lanie at Forest Hill Hand Dyed Yarn. I bought both skeins of 4ply in Mandarin. Since Orange is my favourite colour I couldn’t NOT buy them could I hehe

Mahunga !!

I wanted a cute little hat to match the little Milo Vest I made recently and so I thought a Mahunga was in order. This hat is such a quick hat to make and always looks so lovely. This is made in the gorgeous Olive/Pine green DK yarn from Ewe Give Me the Knits.

I made it in the size larger than he should wear because he HATES hats on his head and this is the only way he will wear one.

Mahunga Baby !!

Milo vest

I adore these quick little vests. Not only are they super fast to knit but they look so delightful !!

This still needs blocking but this is my latest one for Master Ali. I used a gorgeous olive/pine green wool from Ewe Give Me The Knits to make it. I currently have a Mahunga hat being made to go with it now.

I’m thinking to make one of these for my big boy. But there are a couple of other vests I am considering also. I’m ready to tackle larger sized projects now I think.
