Tuesday and Longies embellished


Well last night I did the embellishing on the BFL longies, I'm sooo pleased with how they came out. Lara also seemed impressed as she tried to put them on (they wouldn't be big enough for her or I would keep them!).

Horrid weather here today so hope to get a better photo of them later. 

Off to the Year 2/3 Song Room concert in a minute - hope it sounds better than when dd1 was practicing for it this morning! 

As for what I'm working on now - a pair of longies for dip dyeing and a little car.

Monday Monday


Well completed the blue/green longies today (still can't get the green to show up properly in the photo! arrrgh!!!). And have started thinking about the embellishing which is such fun! 

Also started on a very cute car toy. 

Didn't get as much done today as I'd hoped as had parent teacher meeting at school (all great), grocery shop and a miserable 2 year old!

Pumpkin for me!

This morning I was inspired to make myself a pumpkin. The girls were asking for all sorts of knitted toys (a years worth!) And I fell in love with the little knitted pumpkin so as I rarely knit for me I decided to make it. I love it and it is sitting on my computer.

Saturday morning

This morning I made up a quick project bag. Just a small one with a single internal pocket and snaps closure, as want to knit more when out and about and not use a plastic bag!

Also been teaching the older two girls to knit. They are enjoying themsleves but I'm not getting much done with their continual questions.

What i'm working on today

Blue green longies using 10 ply bfl Can't decide yet if they are more sea or sky grass colours so may change the embellishment depending how they turn out as I go. (photo was taken on my phone so the green doesn't really show up)

And a doll for my friends little girl

This was last weeks exciting creation. 
This little doll was created for my friends little girls 2nd birthday. She should be being picked up from the post office today. I soooo hope she likes it! 
Lara certainly did and carried her around all morning till she was posted off. La so loves her dollies so I will def make her one very soon. The other girls also want one, so as usual a single project ends up being 3 more, lol. 

Just finished - Purple baby set


Just finished this lovely set for a customer today. 
Hand dyed semi solid purple organic merino. 
A set of longies with duck embellishment, beanie and booties with little duck buttons. 

Very cute, very pleased with how it came out. Hope she likes it!!!

A new blog

How exciting, my first post on a new blog. 
I'm doing so much knitting and things at the moment that I thought a place to talk about what I am doing would be a good idea. 
If you would like to see some of what I have created check out my store Zanz Thingz on MadeIt.
