Beanie for my son Ishaq

Using my gorgeous new green wool from Ewe Give me the Knits See HERE I made a beanie for Ishaq. He wanted one that will cover his ears and fit snugly on his head. I found the Caleb beanie pattern from Ravelry and he is so happy.

This is a fast knit and so easy. It will be my go-to boy beanie from now on i’m sure 🙂

Happy and impressed Ishaq in his Caleb Beanie

26th January, Casting on…

On the 26th I began making a Sheepy Sack from HERE on Ravelry.com. I am making it with my 70’s Hangover Yarn from Forest Hills Yarns.

This project is a wonderful one if you want a mindless knit. I am enjoying being able to keep my hands busy but my mind empty. Perfect as a stress reliever or when you want to take a project out to work on in a queue somewhere and don’t want to have to keep referring to a pattern.

My pretty Lagoon wool

I’m knitting this using a 4mm circular and using some stunning wool from Never Ending Obsessions called Lagoon. It’s a DK Superwash. It is only 100grams and 246 Yards… I hope it’s enough o_0 otherwise it’s 3/4 sleeves hahahhaa

Here we go…..

FINALLY I have finished with the increases and now it’s onto the main body of the Cardi…

Finished this a while ago but without home internet I was unable to update ARGHHHH

This was a fun little project and I learnt how to cast on from a raw edge and continue knitting from it which was good. It’s great to learn more.

Here is my Baby Vertebrae 🙂

Almost finished.

Almost finished.

WOOOHOOOO I did IT !!  I love this =D Can't wait to see baby wearing it.

I love this =D Can’t wait to see baby wearing it.

I really loved this project. Be sure to check it out on Ravelry.

 

I want to knit this. Baby Sunshine !

I am absolutely in love with this beautiful baby snuggle from Ravelry.com. It’s called Baby Sunshine and I think it’s GLORIOUS !!  Check it out HERE

I have to buy some long circulars before I can knit up some large projects so this one is on hold until then. I hope to have some soon because this is one knit I MUST have for when baby is born. It’s so pretty and I can already imagine my little babe snuggled up underneath it 🙂

I WILL make this !

Don't you just LOVE it !!

Don’t you just LOVE it !!

16th January. casting on….

I’m going to make this gorgeous little hat called Mahunga and you can buy it HERE from Ravelry.com

SO CUTE !!! Mahunga from ravelry.com

I’m almost positive I should have just enough yarn left from my Hungry Little Caterpillar wool to knit this. I’m going to give it a go. Otherwise I will use the rim in one colour and the main part of the hat in the caterpillar colourway.

Here we go …

And FINISHED with wool left over hahaha I am glad I made this. I had a little help from the designer Kelly Brooker on one of my new favourite wool pages Forest Hill Hand Dyed Yarn

Knitting away in the middle of the night in this photo but I like progress shots so i’ll put it on here

I’m very pleased with this hat, the pattern gives you a few different ways to finish your project so you can personalise it to the lucky receiver you are knitting for.

Here’s my hat 🙂

15th January. Casting on..

I received some very very beautiful wool in the post yesterday so now i’m very much spoilt for choice on what to make.

here we go !!!

8 hours later and I’m finished !! I couldn’t put this one down. I love working from the bottom up it was so much easier to navigate the arm holes. I’m going to make another one of these vests for sure.

I love the look of the arms here. Such simple details. I’m sure the next time I knit this it will look neater though 🙂

And the hem of the vest is made so that it doesn’t roll up which is a great thing in my book.

And finally. The finished vest =D  I LOVE the colourway of this yarn. It was so cheerful to use and oh so very soft.
