Heart Felt

M1 has a brand new cardy! And as much as I'd like to take credit for making it , I cheated on this one.

If you read Jannelle's LOVELY blog (one of my most favourite reads) you will recognise this as a Heartfelt design

Miss M in her heartfelt

I actually took about a dozen shots but missy has decided that posing, standing still or in anyway co-operating with mother + camera is now out of the question. And out of all those shots this was the only good one (even if I did cut off half her head!). Lucky this is about the cardy not the cute kid.

I've been coveting Jannelle's great work for ages so was pretty pleased to grab this for M. Just in time for the autumn weather we've been having! If funky, one of a kind "upcycled" knits are your thing then check out Jannelle's creations - they are really clever, and very cool.


I *am* planning on knitting her a winter cardy too and tonight I finally managed to make a start ....

Robin Hood Jacket

Robin Hood Jacket from Zoe Mellor's Adorable Knits for Tiny Tots. (You'll need a Ravelry account to see those links). I've wanted this book forever and found it by chance in a local bookstore last week for under $20 (I've looked for this online and its always over $40). As well as scoring a great deal on the book, the yarn was a whole $1/ball at Spotlight's end of season sale a few weeks back. Got to love a great bargain. I've wanted to knit this jacket (also) forever, I'm just hoping its easier to knit than it looks...There's a whole lot of cables going on there!!

Well, even if half her head is missing, it's still an adorably cute photo! I love the cabled cardi you've picked to make next.

Leah said...

The blue cardi is so sweet - the little bunny just makes it!

And you can totally do cables!! Looks great, and will knit up so quick (what a bargain on the yarn!)

Very cute cardy, I agree Janelle is super clever!! I love that cable cardy too, it's also on my list of 1000 things to knit. Your Reverie turned out really great, beautiful colour..... i bought some yarn to knit the Meret, but no idea when I am going to get round to knitting it!! You are right about the weather, there is definitely a chill in the air walkiing to school at the moment. Have a great weekend...X

Looking forward to seeing the Robin Hood Jacket knitted up...I've got that book too, and have coveted the jacket for ages, but have been too intimidated by the cables to cast on for it. Good luck!

She looks so sweet in the blue colour - bet she's a real handful though! :) Look forward to seeing the Robin Hood jacket - I really need a small child to knit for!

That is THE most precious baby cardigan I've ever seen! The little bunny stitched on the outside really makes it special. Do you think I am too old for this look - LOL

Aunt Kathy said...

Oh I so want to make things like that, beautiful just beautiful

Mama Bird said...

This is on my list too for my big girl! I have got some silvery grey Rowan Coccoon, which was nowhere near as bargain-tastic as your wool!

Looooovveeee spotlight sales :)
