New on my needles

I have just started knitting a dress as a birthday present for Bea. I only have a month to finish it but as I tend to get addicted to knitting once I start a new project I should hopefully get it done in time. I'm loving the scarlet yarn.

French chic for babies!

I have just discovered the amazing Citronille and want to make everything! Including this lovely dress. The patterns are in French but look quite simple so I think I could muddle through...There are also patterns for older kids and women as well as lovely fabric.

I love the vintage looking illustrations as well. I'm expecting Bea to have curly blonde hair like this when she eventually grows some!

I am about to embark on a knitted dress as a 1st birthday present so when that is done I think I have found my next project!

Not booties

This should be another bootie picture, to show you the coordinating booties I made for my sister who is expecting twin girls in a few months. One pair was pink with cream edging and the other was cream with pink edging so they can use them to identify which is which in the first few days! However, we mislaid the camera so I couldn't take a photo before I gave them to my sister.

When the camera was found I uploaded some photos from a couple of weeks ago of Bea and her cousin Tilly trying out the new swing at Granny's house. By a lucky coincidence they both matched the swing and each other, resulting in some quite nice pictures!

Looks like Tilly isn't happy about waiting for her turn. Or maybe someone just told her shes about to get two new baby sisters!
