I always have some side projects on the go. I'm knitting a gift for new baby Juniper Valentine over at Rummey Bears. Rummey Bears has always been I think one of my favourite blogs, if not my favourite and sadly Anna has decided to call it a day in the blogging world. I've never met Anna but we converse by the interweb and for those of you who don't know, she designed the dover & madden logo. She was a customer now a "web friend" (my reference to those I haven't met) and her gorgeous little girls are the recipients of quite a few knitted goodies.
I'm knitting a caplet for Juniper, I've started it in cream, but I have the same alpaca yarn in soft grey and donkey brown, so we'll see which one she gets. The pattern is from Rowan.
I've also been doing an octagon a day on this long overdue blanket that needs to be moved on and become available in my Etsy store. It's made from 100% Australian Organic Wool.....unfortunately the company that makes this yarn decided to shut up shop.....big shame really, but if I ever find they've started up again I'll let you know.....this yarn is to scrumptious not to share... I'm lucky enough still to have a large stash of it, although some colours I'm coming to the end of.....insert unhappy face here! I'll blog about this blanket when it's completed. It does come from a pattern, but I've lost the book it comes from. I'll do my best to hunt it down if I can.
PS. I've found the pattern and created a page on Ravelry for this blanket which will lead you to the pattern book. You'll find it here
Have you noticed my blog has had a bit of clearout? I've just done a bit of a tidy up. You can still follow me.....scroll down to the bottom of the page and join.
Anyway I'll sign off with my standard line....I've got hats to knit!!
