Off to the new owners!

My tags have arrived and I’m taking them to Shane tomorrow so all is ready for the raffle. I am mission one though… Ozzie the octopus dissapeared while I was on a business trip yesterday. I have three suspects so far, but need to get some evidence … ok, just looked under the sofa and he’s there. They’re off the hook and here’s a redo of the photo with Ozzie included 🙂

Shetland Scarf

Finished!! I have been working on this scarf for the past two months! Wow, i really don’t like having stuff on the needles for too long. About a week is more than enough 😀 😀
My mum said she would really like a shetland scarf so i figured, let’s find some wool. Managed to catch skein of damson/purple shetland on ebay and figured let’s try 🙂 And then I liked the pattern of the dulce neck cozy and this is what I’ve been doing for the past month(s). It’s my mum’s birthday in less then two weeks and we’re traveling there – not so sure how good of a present is a scarf in the middle of a (very) hot summer though…
About the pattern itself – really nice and easy to do, I started to do it double-stranded first (and it was lovely!) but unfortunately one skein wasn’t enough, so had to undo (and I made a complete mess winding it up again) but it works – I do hope she’ll like it.
Will be posting photo soon.

May results

Gotta love the technology – in the car for next couple of hours and not driving – so I realised it is a perfect opportunity to catch up and show off 🙂 I’ll do the formatting later as that part is a bit tricky over the phone …
So I did another doll, following the same pattern as posted earlier. It is a belated birthday present but I should get it to the new owner soon, hope she’ll like it. Elena liked this dress better so I had to do another one for Rapunzel. Her wardrobe is expanding 🙂
I quite like doing the toys, especially as they can use up leftovers of different yarn. This little guy is a minion-wannabe and has been done with leftovers from several yarns and I got the stripping effect.
I also got my first knit to sell order, a hat for a baby girl, size newborn to 6 mths, which is my favourite anyway 🙂 only requirement was to make sure to have pink so I’ll do few so they can choose, these are ready so far.
And for the visit I’m off to now, with the alpacas beanie mentioned earlier, I’m taking the starry nite for the big toddler brother 🙂

Alpaca beanie

I’ve been working on several projects lately – loads of birthdays coming (and some past) – but I wanted to share this one cos I really love it! I’ve used alpaca (made by NorthStarAlpacas) for the first time – came as a part of the phat fiber box and it is ever so soft and fluffy and just wanted to be made into baby something. So I started with Amanda’s book and improvised a bit but here is the result:

I do like it a lot – and I hope that soon-mum-to-be will share the sentiment 🙂
