Ashley Has a New Hat

My youngest son was complaining of the cold, so as us knitters know a woolly hat makes a lot of difference to our body temperatures, so I thought I would make him one.  A quick browse in the surfy shops and I could see what style was in, can't believe how much they charge for factory made acrylic knit hats! Good old Bendigo 12 ply in the stash and in an afternoon, Ashley now has a new hat.  It is such a lovely feeling when you create something for your loved ones.
One of his mates has also asked for one......hmmmm I might be kept a bit busy making hats I feel.

Gloves For Winter

Well I finally can take a deep breath and relax! I have just had the busiest 6 months ever with more people than ever ordering their knitted accessories from me, which is so totally amazing and exhausting all at the same time. I have loved every minute of it and hope to expand on my range to include new pieces for 2013/2014. 
 I do however have a couple of new items to share for us Southern Hemispherians (not sure if that is even a word but hey, I'll use it just the same).
 Flip Top mittens in a gorgeous bright shade of cerise, this style of mitten proved very popular this year and I think while people love fingerless mitts, sometimes you still need to cover up those finger tips. Made from Bendigo Woollen Mills classic 8ply, they are also extremely hardwearing and warm.
But if you like the look of a fingerless then these mitts are just perfect, made from Bendigo alpaca, they are gorgeously soft.  If any of the above appeal and/or you would like to know more, they are available at my Etsy and Madeit shops.

Until next time, happy knitting!
