Midsummer Meadow dress

My favourite place for searching knitting patterns is ravelry.com. I like to look around there even if I have no intend to start a new project. But sometimes I found so amazing pattern that I just have to start knitting something new. This is exactly what happened when I saw this pattern – Meadsummer Meadow by Heidi Atwood-Reeves. It’s part of an e-book including two more dress patterns for girls. I’m still looking forward for the third one.

Here is Meadsummer Meadow dress for my daughter. I used 3,5 mm (US 4) needles. About the yarn I don’t know, I got it from a friend with no label. But it seems like Garnstudio DROPS Muskat.

Cardigan with leaves

I found a nice baby yarn online Laines du Nord Baby Milk (70% merino, 30% milk fiber). I still wonder how it is possible to get fiber from milk. But I love the yarn. It’s very soft and good for baby knits.

I have already made a hat from this to my daughter. this time I knitted a cargigan.

Pattern is Cascade by Raya Budrevich (free Ravelry download 🙂 ) And I really can’t remember the neelde size I used.

Only problem with this cardigan is finding the button holes.

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.

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.

Barefoot sandals

In summer I made two pairs of barefoot sandals. Just looked the book called “Pitsilised koekirjad” and the idea of bottomless flip-flops came into my mind.
