When Vicky announced that Mary would soon be making her entrance into the world, I got straight to work on this Reversible Alpaca Blanket in my favorite colour, mustard. The pattern is downloadable for free on Ravelry or here ‘Reversible Cable and Lace Afghan’
These Linen shorts were a present for a friend’s newborn. The embroidery was done on my Pfaff 2.0 Quilt Ambition Sewing Machine. Identical pairs have been made for Romeo and Pablo. Enjoy the summer boys.
This 18 month polkadot dress was made for my daughter using Liberty of London fabric.
A variation on the brioche stitch (aka fisherman’s rib in British english or cotes Anglaises in french) this fun technique uses the ‘knit one below’ method to create a bulkier, warmer texture. Knitted in the Anny Blatt Nunki Yarn in colours Camel and Bettrave.
Thoroughly enjoyable to knit and the children helped make their own pompoms to finish them off. More to come without a doubt.

I made this quilted waistcoat for my daughter a while ago.
It’s now being passed on to Nell…
This is the same pattern as Fisherman Jumper posted on 16/03/2016.
Monty’s Jumper was made in the same wool in (my favourite colour) Mustard. I added some stripes to help with to the nautical theme. Hopefully Monty’s mum will send some photos of him wearing it that I can add later… I hope Monty likes it…!
The pattern named ‘Diggory’ is available for download on the Berocco Website and is also available on Ravelry
Is it a jumper? is it a skirt? No, it’s a jumper dress!
Simply cut off the ribbing rows at the bottom of a knitted jumper. In this case, a Bonpoint angora knit. Cut some fabric into a skirt shape, here I’ve used some Liberty baby corduroy, sew the side seams and the hem. Then gather the top of the skirt using 2 rows of elasticated thread and sew onto the bottom of the jumper using a zig zag stitch (in order to keep the elasticity of the joining seam).
Plume wore this dress for an Easter weekend by the sea. I’ll probably be making one for myself soon!
I made this patchwork blanket whilst pregnant with my daughter. I found the pattern in a magazine I bought in a jumble sale in England. The design is called the ‘Windmill’.
