Summer hats for my daughter

I used to like knitting the most of all craft techniques. But now I’m not so sure anymore. Crocheting is so amazing too.

Here are two summer hats I made for my daughter. Both patterns are from a book called “Mütsiraamat” (in Estonian). For first one I used Steinbach Wolle Maxi and second is made of Steinbach Wolle Capri.

This book has many great patterns in it. You can see some of them in Ravelry. I like the flower-like hat( the one made of Capri) so much that I’m thinking about making one for me too. Maybe next summer 🙂

Lace shawl for my mom

I knitted a lace shawl for my mom. The pattern is Vanilla Orchid by Agnes Kutas-Keresztes. She is very talented knitwear designer. I really like her designs. I have made the Lemon Thyme shawl. You can see it in my Ravelry project page. And at the moment I’m knitting Almond Blossom cardigan.

For Vanilla Orchid I used The Natural Dye Studio Dazzling Lace which was really amazing yarn and very good for knitting lace, but is unfortunately discounted as the Natural Dye Studio was closed in April 2015.

Flower breeze lace scarf pattern

I love knitting lace and I love warm summer weather. Usually I knit lace of wool yarn. But when the weather is hot the cotton seems far more appealing. So I decided to do a cotton lace scarf.

I was inspired by Estonian lace patterns, flowers and fishing nets. Well, this time the net is for flowers.

Pattern is available in my Ravelry store. And soon in Etsy as well.

Neck warmers for kids

The weather is cold and children needed scarves. But in my opinion a scarf isn’t very practical for a little kid. So I decided to knit collars (or neck warmers – I’m not sure how to call those in English).

I used 4 mm needles and DROPS Baby Merino yarn. And no pattern. I just took m needles and yarn and knitted.

This yarn is mashine washable 🙂 I have tried. So it’s really good for childrens clothing.
