I’m so pleased as I finally have some hand made knitted items to sell. I wanted to design & knit a bonnet for a friend who is soon to have a new baby and the result is this pattern; vintage inspired with a stretchy lace pattern and integral neck strap. It is designed to fit from newborn to three months old. I am selling the pattern as a PDF on Ravelry (see buy it now below photo) and Etsy. I am also selling bonnets knitted to order in a variety of colours for those people who don’t knit. I will be adding more items to my Etsy shop in the coming weeks, please take a look here.

Another of my passions at the moment is vintage. I am starting to design my own vintage inspired patterns, starting with this one – a pair of baby booties using left over Noro silk garden sock, for a very modern look. It’s lovely to knit with, and I had already knitted myself a pair of little bobby socks (like those cut off sport socks). I love Noro yarns and was so excited when we had our delivery with our order for the shop, click the picture below to see more.
Well the baby bootie is nearly finished, then just number two to complete…
While looking on the internet for inspiration, I came across this brilliant video FaithfulCreations – this is part one. What a great way to use toilet roll tubes. I would love to make one of these. I think they would be really good for mini baby books.
