My Creative Space . . .

Wow!  In an attempt to pull the reigns in on my internet addiction, I buried myself into another addiction - knitting!  So, to ease myself back into blogging, I thought I'd show you what I had been up to.

Thanks Kootoyoo for your lovely Thursday link in (yep, I know it is now Friday but I didn't want to wait another week!)

This little number would have to be the easiest pattern I've ever followed.  I got it here.  This I knitted for my friend's 6 year old girl.




I love it so much that I am knitting it for a friend's baby in cherry red.  Don't you just love the gathered look under the bust line?  You can get the baby-sized pattern here.




And for another friend's daughter in speckled blue.  Gotta say, I'm getting a little tired of seed stitch now!

But wait, that's not all!  I needed to learn how to knit in the round for the neck line so I practised by knitting this little beanie and started another but ran out of yarn!



Deano just doesn't like to wear anything on his head.  I have over a dozen photos like this where I put the beanie on his head, bring the camera up to my face only to get the shot with his hands already trying to pull it off!  This beanie is a bit small for my little man, so I think I will give this one to Vinnies and knit another.  I got the pattern from this book.

I'm so glad I have found my knitting mojo again.  Oh, and for those who have been following for a little while, you may be asking about the never ending knitting - almost done.  Just need to fix the toddler inflicted damage . . . not long now!

Good to be back - how are you?

  1. It's good to have you back Fi :)

    LOVE your knitting, the cherry colour is gorgeous. There's nothing like the satisfaction of learning a new skill and you have done a wonderful job of knitting in the round.

  2. They are fantastic. I just dont think I have the skill or patience for knitting. These would take me a life time to knit.

Hey thanks for popping by! I read all your comments and really try and get to your blog too. Despite my good intentions, I don't always reply to each message but I am very grateful for the time you take in sharing your thoughts with me. Word verification is back up because I am getting spammed big time. So thanks for taking that extra step in commenting. Blessings, Fi xxxxx
