Sunset in Spring

I finished this cute wee Spring Butterfly, by designer Rachel Evans, a week or two ago, but have just been dragging my heels to get it blocked and buttons on. But I got there in the end, and her it is:

It's a 12 month size knit using The Wool Company's Sunset variegated yarn, and Amethyst solid colour yarn.

It's such a great pattern for all seasons as it can be worn with just a t-shirt underneath for the warmer weather, or a long sleeved thermal for the cooler months.

This is another addition to my Craft 2.0 stockpile.

Another test knit

I was very lucky to be selected to test knit another gorgeous design by Georgi Hallam. This is Cassia - a really sweet top/tunic/dress that can be knitted with wool or cotton to create an extremely versatile piece of clothing, suitable to wear all year round. I've used a cashmere/merino blend yarn which is lovely and soft. It was a really enjoyable knit and Tess loves the pockets!


Knitting crazily for Craft 2.0

I haven't yet mentioned on here that the Coco Kids have a table at Craft 2.0 on October 30th and we're very excited about it! It's on at the Dowse Art Gallery in Lower Hutt from 10am - 3pm.  If you're in the area please come and support us on the day!

Consequently, I am madly knitting trying to gather enough stock to have for sale on the day. My knitting speed has increased a bit, but still not up to where I'd like it to be - but practice makes perfect, so I'm busy practising ;)

Here is what I have made so far:

Kaia Babydoll 6m size in wool

Eden's Adam, 3m size in cotton

Spring Butterfly 18m size in wool

Spring Butterfly, 6m size in wool

Kaia Babydoll, 6m size in cotton
