FO: Aviatrix

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , on June 19, 2012 by annatestadoro

Here’s another Aviatrix for charity that I knitted back in December 2011. This is the newborn size.

I still love this pattern, really do. It’s a really well written pattern that gives loads of different options for sizes and different yarn thickness. Absolutely great.

FO: Bonnet and Bootie Combo

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , on June 1, 2012 by annatestadoro

I’ve been looking through my folders again and have found another bonnet and bootie combo that I made back in August 2010 for a friend of mine. He had a little girl in or around September or October that year. They just had another baby, but I didn’t knit for them then. Anyway, I’m just going to upload the pictures here, I don’t think they need any words.

FO: Another Hat for Luke

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , on March 23, 2012 by annatestadoro

I know, I know, does one boy really need so many hats I hear you asking. I think he does, and this one was knitted out of cotton yarn so that he can wear it now as we’re going into Spring and potentially later this year when we’re going into Autumn.

It’s an easy pattern from the Garnstudio team, but I actually underestimated how long it would take me to knit it. I made the size for 2 years, as I wanted to make sure Luke can wear it for a little while longer. The last few hats I made him were pretty small for him very quickly.

I think it took me so long to knit as I was using double pointed needles and because there were so many stitches on the needles I had to keep pushing the stitches back and forth. Look at Luke trying to get hold of it while I was taking a picture.

He wasn’t that interested in wearing the hat when I did want to take the pictures, but eventually I got a few.

And I managed to also get some pictures when we’ve been out and about.

Sorry for the silence, we got our Internet connected today, but I’ve been busy with other things. The move went very well and we’re loving the new house. There’s so much space we don’t quite know what to do with it. I’ll be writing more about the house and the different rooms soon. However, I needed to get something up here first. There was a new arrival this last weekend, actually on the day we moved and before she arrived I had knitted her this hat:

It’s a pattern I go back to a lot, as it’s so nice and easy to knit and looks so nice.

And here’s the gorgeous little girl wearing it. Juliette Luella Bonjour, was born at 5:15pm GMT on 17th March 2012.

I’ve got quite a few finished projects that I hope to be showing you over the next few days, but in the meantime I just startet on a new hat for Luke.

I’m using up some of my DROPS Safran leftovers, some of it from the cardigan that I’ve just finished. And have a look at what a nice combination of colours they are.

It’s this hat pattern, which is really easy so far and will continue to be I’m sure.

Another one of the aviatrix hats I knitted when we were in Australia. This was meant to be sold for charity, but wasn’t. So, I’ve still got it in my basket and will be gifting it to one lucky baby as soon as possible.

I have to say again how much I love this pattern, it’s available for free on Ravelry.  If you’re ever looking for a quick knit of a hat that stays on very well, I highly recommend this one.

FO: Pixie Hat for Luke

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , on February 18, 2012 by annatestadoro

When I saw the new DROPS Design baby patterns I knew that I absolutely had to knit this one. It’s the pattern I love, but with an added twist.

It was a really easy knit, and very similar to my other favourite hat pattern. It calls for DROPS Alpaca, so I used that in a brown. I did knit the 12-18 months size, but it seems very snug indeed on Luke.

While it does seem very snug Luke has been wearing it for the last 2 weeks or so during the cold snap that we’ve just had here. But you can judge for yourselves.

FO: Strawberry Hat

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , on February 11, 2012 by annatestadoro

I know I showed you the strawberry hat in one of my WIP Wednesday posts. Well, I finished it last two weeks ago now and have already given it to my friend who had ordered it, but I just realised that I haven’t yet shared any pictures with you of the finished piece. So, here it goes:

The pattern can be found here. I actually love how it’s worked out. It’s the first time that I’ve even attempted Intarsia and it wasn’t even a huge amount if it, it was just a tiny bit for the leaf at the top of the hat/strawberry.

The colours are also really nice, so vibrant! I do really want to knit one for Luke, but don’t really think it would suit him too well…maybe I can do another type of fruit instead?

I’m working on an order a good friend of mine placed a couple of weeks ago. And I’m using the yarn that I showed you on Sunday. Get ready for it, it’s a strawberry hat :-).

What do you think so far? I’m loving the colours!

Here’s another Aviatrix I knitted up while I was in Australia.

I want to say again how I really LOVE this pattern, it’s such a great write up, and it can be found here.

And look at this gorgeous little girl wearing her new hat:

You might remember this is gorgeous Sofia, who received one of the green hoodies I knitted…but doesn’t she look gorgeous.
