Sweet Cyndi Dress Gift Set, with Beanie and Booties

Autumn could be arriving soon here in Melbourne.
So, it's finally time to officially list and post this dress gift set that I have made a few weeks ago.

The dress can be worn as is, or with an underlying shirt and leggings. The set comes with a super cute ruffles beanie and a pair of booties.

These 2 sets are ready stock and available on my Etsy shop.
Custom order is available, to have the set in different colour, material (if wool is preferable), and size.

Personalised Bookmark Celebrating Birth Month Flower

I had been working on this project for a few weeks now. Sketching, researching, drawing, colouring, and finally finished the prototype of the flower design. 
And I'm glad that it's finally done!!
It had consumed my thoughts in the last few weeks, as I can't really stop once I started.

These flowers celebrate the birth month flower. I tried to capture the essence of each flower, while at the same time making the design to fit a small sized bookmark. 
Meaning, the area to work with is very small, each of these flower only occupies 20 horizontal squares and under 50 vertical squares.

My favourite? Of course I don't have one, I love them all equally.

The finished bookmark will look like this:

Sweet Phoebe Bolero

When I was researching for autumn pattern for toddler, I really can't get past this pattern from Garnstudio.

It's sweet and pretty, and also more importantly, comfortable looking, with lots of space for movement there for active kids.

These are knitted using Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 8ply yarn, in Marigold and Lipstick Rose.
Available in different sizes and also custom order from my Etsy store.

(Completed on 23rd September 2017)

Little Buddy Vest - Baby and Toddler Vest

This is another personal favourite of mine, that I have also knitted for my son a few years ago.

A smart looking vest, with intricate cables for a little man.

I knitted these in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 8 ply yarn, in Tasman Blue and Marigold.

(Completed between 16th - 20th September 2017)

Matching Family Sweater

Our first winter in Melbourne was proven to be challenging. The struggle with the cold weather started in autumn (yes, we already struggled in autumn). So, at the first sign of cold, I rushed to order wool yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills and knitted these matching Aran sweaters.

The adult male and female sweaters are the same pattern in different sizes, knitted in dark blue and orange yarn.

The children Aran sweater was knitted in similar pattern, in blue.

(Knitted between 20th May 14th Jun 2017)

Sweetie Pie Vest

I first knitted this vest for my son a few years ago when he was a newborn.
The stripes pattern is just too cute and allows you to be creative and mix different colours.
I guess, this is also suitable for baby girls.

I knitted this again as a gift with Bendigo Woollen Mills Cotton yarn 4ply, Peach and Latte.

(Completed 26th August 2017)

Using Up Yarn Remains - Coffee Cup Cozies

In a bid to use up all my yarn remains, before they transform into a giant hairball, I knitted various coffee cup cozies to sell and to give as freebies.

I managed to make 19 coffee cup cozies in 1 week.

And... No more yarn remains!!

(which means, more space for new balls of yarn, Yay!)

(Completed between 29th March 2017 and 4th April 2017)
