Happy go knitty

I have now launched my new brand for all my knitted goodies.
They will sell under the name


Colourful beanies

Big changes are coming for this blog,
but it will probably take another week or two...

In the meantime, here are some new beanies. Cute, eh!?


How to build a bird

My daughter is learning about things that fly and glide in school.
They had to investigate the subject and create a poster
or PowerPoint to present at school.

But Mira loves making diaramas so here he is, ta-da

Fluffy the Bird


Colours, colours and more colours

Last weekend we dyed even more yarn. Sometime you get really surprised
when you start mixing colours and/or putting in already dyed yarn.
Luckily we have no bad surprises just amazing, beautiful colours.

The purple to the left is a hot pink hank that went into the bright blue (middle).
It’s got lots of different pink and purple shades.

The short green one was an old kinda dirty yellow with some orange,
that I decided to redye. It also went into the blue bath and at first it looked like
a really ugly boring brown... But we left it in the bath a bit longer and after
washing and drying it came out a stunning olive with some brown shades in it!

The dark purple to the left are is a blue that went into a red bath
and then we poured in some more blue dye! The light one is just
a lighter shade from when the bath had cooled down.

I have some much beautiful yarn now that I will make into
kid’s beanies and other things. I will hopefully be back at the
Devonport Craft Market in a couple of months.


Hot pink dye bath

Well, with all that cotton yarn and dyes lying around,
it’s difficult to keep my fingers off!

Today we mixed a hot pink bath and put in some unbleached and some
yellow from last time. And look! Different shades of pink and the yellow
hanks turned out in shades from coral to fiery red.



Yellow and green

Mum and I dyed some cotton yarn in the weekend.
It’s so much fun!
And it came out beautiful, didn't it?

Some of the yellow will go in a red dye batch
and I will try some in hot pink, just for the fun of it!

Mum brought 4kg cotton yarn from Sweden.
Stay tuned.


My crafty daughter and mum

My sister (visit her very inspiring blog here) sent my daughter some wool for xmas.
Not wool yarn, but wool for felting and an instruction pamphlet on how to use it.
My mum is visiting at the moment and they spent some time yesterday trying it out.

They made a beautiful bracelet for me and a funky one for Mira.
Isn’t it amazing what a clever 8-year old and a nana can come up with!
