Heart baby blanket

       

I loved the result of my green leaf-square baby blanket (and it seems a lot of you did too!) that I decided to use the same yarn, this time in yellow, to make the Heart Baby BlanketSirdar Snuggly DK Kisses, shade: Sunshine; pattern by Fiber Trends, Easy Knit Baby Blankets Collection II.

   

Karen’s The Unique Sheep KAL shawl beginnings, and one lovely lacey sock.

       

Karyn’s mans wrist warmer, perky pompom head warmer, and a baby’s  blankie. Blankie Bunny is a nifty little design which forms a pocket for the head as you knit. When finished all you do is stuff it with a little fill. Cute!

   

How clever is she, no wonder Karyn’s all smiles. Our Queen of the Sock can handle two at a time in the round.

   

Simone models her green top in perendale by Briar Patch : colour Cambridge Green.

These hand dyed 4 ply offerings from Fiber Alive Merino Mania, snapped up by Simone.

All done bar attaching the button, Wendy’s baby cardi ready to go.

           

The drop stitch pattern Fiona is working on her tank, and her creature covers – right: a colour sampler using a selection of perendale DK yarn by Briar Patch.

       

Finished and ready to wear – Raewyn’s multi shawlette and recently acquired yarn by Verandah (hand-dyed loveliness in NZ) with shawl pins.

       

The Spirit of Guernsey – A Mystery Lace Shawl KAL by The Unique Sheep: has captivated Raewyn, Simone and Karen and indeed all the group as we eagerly check their progress each week – exciting!…

        

…In the true nature of a mystery, there are not pattern pictures until the end reveal, so join the rest of us in the journey as we look on.

   

Cables and moss are great together and when executed by a pro you have high definition and tension to dream about.  Wendy is working her magic here using a delightful shade of green, yarn by Skeinz.

To die for! Crafted by Karen for Jeanette and modelled by Simone. The yarn we affectionately called  Smooshy was also produced by Jeanette of Briar Patch fame – 100% merino 10 ply yarn – supremo!

       

Made to measure perfection by Fiona. Everything about this top is to love, from the light and lacey stitch, shaping and tapering, to the scalloped neckline.

       

Knitting for my sweet grandbaby’s brings me no end of pleasure, I finished this multi cardi for Ania a couple of weeks ago.

   

The pattern is Sirdar 2236 and made it in Click DK, colour Verve,  purchased from Deramores. I’m hoping the yarn integrity will stand up to repeated washing, the jury’s still out on that.

           

Proud as punch with my BonBons – design by Susanna, sourced off Ravelry.  The wrist warmers/gauntlets took a jiffy to make (couple of days). Made in 4 ply merino yarn from my stash they’re perfect to keep my hands cosy whilst working on my PC in my freezing office. There’ll be no excuse now for icy fingers when I crawl into bed after burning the midnight oil.

       

Hot off my needles yesterday, this tea bag fair isle hat for Raz. Picture complete with paint on the nose from Kindy and a cookie crumb smile by Bushke (yes, that would be me). I did my best to capture the moment 🙂  Stash yarn again, main colour a DK merino with self striping fair isle and remnants. Pattern adapted from the Sublime book 649, pattern called Freddie fair isle tea bag hat.
