Here is my next project. The pattern is from "Easy Baby Knits - clothes & accessories for 0-3 year olds" by Claire Montgomerie.

I'm using "Cedar Fleck" 12ply from Bendigo Woollen Mills and it's really lovely to knit with. I'm also using size 8 needles.

So far I'm up to the raglan shaping on the back and once I've bound off, I'll take a photo.

I'm almost tempted to alter the pattern and and knit myself one - it's so snuggly and warm looking!

A spring vest for my little guy

I used Sweater Wizard to generate a pattern to knit Thom this little vest. From past experience I knew that I would have to alter the pattern, however, because Thom is quite tall and standard patterns for his age always knit up too small for him.

I not only knit it according to his torso length but also pesonalised it to his own measurements around his arms as well. I was pretty pleased that I was able to alter the pattern without too much stress on my part!

I'm really happy with how it turned out and it should be perfect for this in between weather we've been having :-)

Long time no blog

My GOSH it's nearly been a month since my last blog entry!

I haven't really done anything major knitting wise. I have been plodding along with some little projects that I seem to get bored with easily (hence the number of projects!).

At the moment (and I'll get photos up later) I'm working on:

  • A scarf for my mum (an overdue birthday present)
  • Two Christmas decorations (a snowman and Mrs Claus)
  • A crocheted string bag
  • A coat for myself (for next Winter).

That's all ;)

Back later with photos.
