Yarn Halo's

I experimented with some sweet Newborn Tie-Backs yesterday. I used soft organic cotton and loved how they came out. Can't wait to see how they turn out on a new little ones head. Two are off to photographers this morning.....

I began a new bunny last night. We are going to a baby shower in two weeks where they are telling the gender at the party. Can you believe I have never been to a baby shower in my life? I heard her nursery colours are grey and antique white. I hope my bunny comes out what I see in my mind. I love when that happens.

Pay It Forward

On Saturday I did something so fun. I listed a lovely grass green cowl for .20cents. A pay it forward item. The person who bought it had to either do a random act of kindness or if she owned an Etsy shop had to do the same thing. The cowl sold in four hours! So excited and loved doing it.......I am going to do this again so keep checking!

What random act of kindess have you done lately? Love to hear!!!!

Mini Blanket

Knitting a simple, chunky mini blanket is so rewarding. I love thinking of the possibilities. A new baby wrapped up in it coming home for the first time? A creative photographer using it for a newborn session while excited parents look over in the wings? Or just to be that favourite 'banki'. I love making them for all these reasons.

All these colours are now offered in my shop(

Yummy grizzlie colours.......

Baby Boy

Oh to knit for a sweet baby boy that hasn't come yet. This is a custom order for a good friend's cousin. She is expecting her third boy and I have knit sweaters for all three. Handknits are the things you put in the memory box. The types of things you pull out over time and can't believe they were ever that small!!! So special.

I decided to do a quick sweater knit in the round. They are usually called "5 hour sweaters" but I bet that lady did not have three kids, a dog and a hubby to take care of. Although it was quick, not THAT quick. The little hat was thrilling for me as I have finally mastered a crochet hat I can be proud of. The set is really sweet.

And of course my wooden buttons! Just love my wooden buttons. The yarn was Waverly by Bernat. I haven't used it before but I really liked it. I have a ball of yellow crying out to be used....another cute hat???

I have posted the hat in my shop. ( I will do them from newborn-3T. And of course I have to get a few girl versions posted!

Hope you are having a wonderful day. I think I see the sun out....could it finally be spring???
