FO: Aviatrix

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , , on February 29, 2012 by annatestadoro

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: A Pair of Silky Hats on the Way to Iceland

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , , on February 9, 2012 by annatestadoro

A friend I went to school with ordered a couple of silky hats from me that he wanted me to send to Iceland, and I managed to knit them up very quickly earlier this week. I posted them off to Iceland today.

The pattern, as you’ve probably noticed is one of my favourite. It’s always knitted up very quickly and this time I used the DROPS Alpaca Silk yarn, which is a combination of baby alpaca and mulberry silk…it’s scrumptiously soft.

And the second one is another one of my favourite. Again, it was also knitted in DROPS Alpaca Silk.

I’m not sure if the new arrival is going to be a boy or girl, so I picked these very neutral…but I think lovely colours.

WIP Wednesday

Posted in Knitting with tags , , on November 23, 2011 by annatestadoro

I’ve certainly been busy knitting here on holiday, and I’m currently working on a pair of newborn socks.

I love knitting newborn sock as I can knit them so quickly, I can usually make a pair in an evening. It’s taking me a little bit longer here, but that’s because I’m keeping busy with other things, like for example going to the beach!

And here are some Aviatrix hats that I’ve knitted for charity and only have to finish off by sewing in the ends.

Excuse the terrible pictures, but I’ve not got my trusty Photoshop to rely on to touch them up a little bit :-).
