Little Baby Blue

Okay, here are the latest shorties that I have knit.

Pattern: Ladybug Loops (Ravelry)

Needles: 4mm for the waistband, 4.5mm for the body. 2 pairs of circular needles for each size.

Size: Newborn

Yarn: Custom dyed organic merino from in 10ply/worsted weight. Knits up like 12ply/bulky though.

Mods: I did a knitted cast on instead of a stretchy cast on because I like the look of it better. I did a 2x2 rib for the waistband with eyelet holes for a knitted I-cord. I did a garter stitch hem for the cuffs. Love how quickly this knit up with this yarn and with the 2 circulars instead of the 1 long circular using magic loop. I totally LOVE the way that the colours pooled in this knit.

Sewing, knitting and baking! :)

Hey all, it's been so long since I posted. Sorry about that. I've been crafting on and off; sewing, knitting and baking cool things. First up: Sewing! I made myself a knife roll for work at the start of the year. I also made one for my boss as a present.
Next up: Knitting! I knitted a little purple Milo for a friend's baby. She was thrilled with it.
I also knitted a pair of Newborn Ladybug Loops shorties. They're so cute! I forgot how small newborns are.
Lastly: Baking! I have been teaching J to bake. He can make cookies, pancakes and he helps with a lot of other things. He's a natural, like his Mum. :)
He is quite pleased with himself.
I created a new type of cookie at work last year. It is a gluten free cookie with marshmallow in the centre. I called them "pillows".
Last, but not least. I created a minecraft cake. It was a mudcake, covered in buttercream icing, layered with marzipan and then I applied around 250 "pixels" made from plastic icing. This was my inspiration: A minecraft grass cube.
This was my cake!
I promise I will try to be around a bit more. I am ever so slowly knitting again, so keep an eye out for that. <3
