My creative Space


My modest effort this week was my first knitted hat. From this free pattern. Moving on from scarves...finally! I quite liked the cotton, and now looking forward to some true Autumn weather. I actually did the hat upside-down as my seam was not quite up to scratch. It still retained the same shape, as it is, essentially, a square when knitted up.


And of course the little munchkin was asleep when I finished it. But not to worry, a sleeping baby can make the perfect little model :)
After years of wanting to learn to knit, and a shortage of any available teachers, it feels good to have gotten this far in the past six months. Though it has been baby steps, slowly, a world of knitting is opening up to me. Perhaps a baby jumper next...

Your baby is just too cute!!

Thanks for visiting my blog Tania. I just wanted to let you know that the Oliver & S pyjama pattern is out of print but I found a copy at one of the Australian online fabric shops (think it might have been Earthgirl fabrics), so they're around.

That is just precious! Both the baby and the cap! I have been thinking it was time to become a knitter myself. It seems like the perfect purposeful craft for me. I have done it long ago, but have completely forgotten everything.

I love that yarn too!

You have done a lovely job with both the hat and the cute sleeping baby. Both look perfect to me.

Have a great day,
