A couple of FO's

Medium/large longies made in Rocker melon slice colourway with double moss stitch cuffs that can be turned up if needed


Christmas hat for my little boy


I had to reknit the ribbing round the face because when I first cast off with 5.0mm needles it was too tight. I did it two rows less and used massive 9mm needles to cast off.

He still isn't that keen to wear it :-( Maybe if it gets really cold outside he'll be more willing...

See, completely unimpressed! (and covered in royal icing from decorating the Christmas cake)


But at least it covers his ears :-)

Hudson hat and tester soaker

I've only just finished the hat today. Well I finished it at the weekend but it's taken me a week to get round to weaving in all the ends. It's a Christmas present for my brother

Hudson hat

Made using the Hudson hat pattern and lots of yarn ends from knitting longies.

I also knitted a tester soaker sack. The idea is that they are quicker for night time nappy changes because you just undo the bottom drawstring and pull the bottom part up. It also means the baby can feel their legs better.

Longies and WIP's

Here are some custom longies that were part of a collab with Wonderfull Colours for Buy British Month on the Cloth Nappy Addicts forum. The colourway is called Forest Whispers.


No idea why the legs pooled so differently. They were knitted with the same ball of yarn, same number of stitches etc.

They're to be posted today as they're now dry from lanolising. Just need to do the drawstring.

Next, here are my current WIP's


A Ribbed Baby Jacket for Bump knitted in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. The safety pin is so I can count how many rows I've done cos I get easily confused doing it in my head!


A Hudson hat for my youngest brother for Christmas. I'm making it a bit longer than the basic pattern states cos he's got a big head and he's 6ft 6 so I want it to look more in proportion lol.


A Turtle Butt soaker for my little boy. Started this in October but I've got to a bit where I need some time to concentrate on it and during the day that's impossible with the children around and by the evening I'm falling asleep. Hopefully over Christmas when DP is home I'll be able to complete it.


This will eventually be an Easy Drop Stitch Scarf knitted with some handspun yarn by Mamalonglegs. The first picture shows the colours a bit truer although it was taken with flash. The picture below shows how the pattern is developing. This is one of those pick up and knit a couple of rows at a time projects. It's nice mindless knitting :-)


Hopefully I'll have some FO's to post about soon

More longies

These are made using Krafty Koala's's gorgeous Black Carnival colourway. They were a custom order and finished with a twisted rib cuff



Ooo shiny new blog

Hi, figured it's about time I did something properly with this blog so I can actually show off what I knit rather than hiding it on my personal livejournal or my public livejournal

I'm a mother of two (and Bump on the way) and I've been selling knitted shorties and longies for the past 6 months. My shop is here: The Soaring Sheep

Anyways, here are a few photos of my most recently finished custom orders.
