Kitty Love Washcloth :)

Dearest friends,

My blog has lost almost all of its followers - only 3 now! Sigh :)

In order to finish the ball of yarn I had in orange, I thought to add a little gadget for the baby set - and I found a lovely washcloth - so cute, with a kitten and a heart! :)

Easy peasy :) Just knit and purl ;)

Here it is :)

Saartje Booties :)

Dear friends!

Sooo, here I am again - the baby who is supposed to get the Aviatrix Baby Hat will be born tomorrow - and I found the time to do some extra thingies before we go visit the newborn! I mixed the hat-yarn with some spare green merino I had and... I enjoyed the occasion to knit my FIRST baby booties ever! They are so cute and quick to make! Just I wasn't very happy about the loop holes for the buttons, they are not really ideal, but well, there it goes! :)

I find it quite sweet :) What do you think? I found the pattern on Raverly :)

Oh, and here a photo of the hat and the booties together! :)

Aviatrix Baby Hat :)

Dear friends!

I haven't posted anything for a loooong time, I know. You probably have forgotten this blog. But truth is, I hadn't knitted anything either! Sorry :( Life got suddenly extremely busier and I didn't have the concentration for knitting something new. I have got a lovely excuse now: a friend is going to give birth very soon and I thought I'd do a lovely baby hat - so, I found this AVIATRIX BABY HAT pattern on RAVELRY and chose a lovely PEACH coloured yarn at my local shopping mall :) Only, I didn't have the 3.25 needles with me, so I did the whole pattern with the smaller needles asked for in the pattern (3mm) --- it works actually!

It was quite easy and I loved the "melon" shaping of the head - for this I had to learn a new kind of movement: WRAP AND TURN :) Nice to see there is always something new to learn! I hope the baby and the mother will like this :) The earflaps and straps are so cute as well :)
