Just finished, dip dyed light pink, dark pink to purple bfl longies with a cupcake embellishment.
Made these over the weekend.
A beanie for La - she chose the yarn herself.
And a gorgeous scarf for me. It's made from recycled silk handspun in Nepal and the colours are just stunning. (hard to get a good shot with the lack of sun here at the moment)

Mother's Day FO's
A crochet hat for dd1, she loved the Purple Rain silk merino that I used for my scarf so I made her a hat with the left overs. She chose a blue flower.
I also made this cute little hair clip that Amelia is wearing.

Been wanting to make some trousers for Lara for ages. Nothing fits her, they are either too big in the waist, have a nappy rise so hang around her knees or are half way up her legs.
So made up a pattern a few weeks ago and as I had the sewing machine out doing school uniform name labels I thought I'd give it a go.
Here are last weeks dye jobs:
100g 5ply Purple Rain
200g 8ply silk merino Purple Rain
200g 12ply Kalkari
200g 12ply Diva Princess
and 200g 12ply Ice Princess
and there was also 150g woolganics Ocean (which is still hanging up).
