Recent Customs

I've been super busy lately, not helped by a hungry baby who wants to nurse all the time! He is about 18lbs now at less than 4 months old so it's not surprising really!

Anyways, here's what I've been up to:



I've also got some X-Large skirty longies on the needles which are taking a while! Got about an inch left on the skirty part now so hoping I'm not going to run out of yarn!

I finally took a photo of Eli wearing the jacket I made for him whilst I was pregnant


At 6-9 month size it just fits him!

And as I'm showing off him, I might as well post some photos of the other two as well :-)

Here come the girls!

I've been enjoying lots of girly orders lately. As I only have boys in cloth nappies at the moment it's good fun to be able to use pinks and ruffles :-)

This pair were an X-Large custom order using Krafty Koala's Fairground colourway. Soooo bright!


This pair are in Babylongleg's Chocolate Candy colourway. Due to a problem with my shop I managed to sell this colourway twice. The other customer is being very understanding and patient and I'll be knitting hers up when Sarah has had the time to dye up more yarn when she's back from her hols :-)


I love these ruffles!!


Finally I've got a Juliette skirty to show off that I've made as a swap for a friend's baby. I'm going to be offering custom slots for these from August




I did a sewn cast off for the legs and skirty which took forever! Won't be doing that again, no matter how nice it looks!

Busy Me

Two more shorties to show off and another pair just finished today that need lanolising which I'll post pictures of tomorrow.

First shorties are these made using Babylongleg's Weeping Willow colourway. These were for the same person who ordered the Blue Banana shorties


I ran out of yarn at the end so ended up having to do a simple crocheted drawstring. I'm really pleased with how they turned out though. Hardly any pooling and the colours look really nice knitted up.

This pair I finished at the weekend:


They're knitted in a goldfish colourway from Krafty Koala. I'd been lusting after this colourway for a whiile, bought it and then persuaded a customer to choose it! These were X-large shorties but surprisingly quick to knit. I love this colourway and I'm sure I'll be ordering it again at some point :-D

Anyways, need to get back to the needles. Hopefully I'll have some more photos to post soon :-)

Sunday, 5 July 2009


Had a scary moment last night. I tried to put away a big bag of yarn I got recently from Babylonglegs. I didn't have space in my yarn box. I didn't have space in the big drawer either. I have too much yarn :-o I told DP to take a note of the time!

Unfortunately I decided I had too much yarn just after I ordered 5 skeins from Krafty Koala, whoops!

However I have finished a pair of X large shorties which I cast on friday evening. I then cast on another pair of shorties and I've finished the back of a medium soaker which will be part of a skirty I'm making for a friend's baby.

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with yarn at the moment so I'm knitting really quickly to try to get rid of some of it. I'm hoping to get all my orders done by August so I can close the shop for a month and knit some longies for Eli to wear this winter. I've got 3 longies worth of yarns that I bought for him from the US whilst i was pregnant and I've not touched any of them. I've also got 2 skeins of yarn I was going to make into longies for my eldest hut she's potty trained. I'm still deciding whether to use it for my bigger boy or to keep it to one side for Eli when he's bigger...

Patt of me likes the idea of putting all my yarn in a big pile on the floor and taking a photo. I'm worried that it might shock me a bit though!

Anyways, I'll do some photos of what I've been making in a bit but just wanted to post this one now of some instock shorties I made out of the yarn I dyed a few weeks ago


I'm rather pleased with them :-) They're listed for sale in my shop
