As we roll into winter its well and truly time to roll out the knitting sticks.
I’ve been on a bit of a roll of finishing projects, some quite recent, some very old.
A couple I love and would love to share.
And I have plenty of new projects waiting to get started.
But one at a time…
My beautiful niece had a baby recently and I wanted to knit her something traditional and groovy.
So I made the Edmund Wrap Sweater by Sublime and it turned out great.
Sadly, my niece lives in Colorada, so I’m not likely to see him in it. But maybe she can send a photo!
What’s your favourite baby pattern?
Welcome to the craft pavillion!
I grew up in the country. And I’ve always loved the show. The animals. The cooking. The showbags.
Now I live in the city.
But luckily, for a few weeks every October, the country comes to the city.
And I love it!
Tomorrow’s the last day, so try and get along.
Angry Birds Cake
Old McDonald Cake
Anne-Marie Primmer is the queen of the cooking at the show. With over 70 entries and heaps of wins, her bake goods dominated.
There’s some pretty weird craft on show too…
I said weird, didn’t I.
There is also super cute craft, like these knitted cupcakes.
And of course there is plenty of dog primping
Our neighbours have just had a little baby.
I wanted to give them something hand made for little Oliver.
I found this wonderful pattern on Prudent Baby.
I found the gorgeous bunnies at Funky Fabrix.
It took one night in front of the telly to knock it out.
Really love how it turned out.
Hope Oliver loves it too!
Do you have any super easy baby projects that you can knock out in a hurry?

With a friend going to Africa, I needed some decoration for her farewell.
And I wanted to make bunting.I found some fantastic instructions on Glorious Treats
It took me about 4 hours to make the first lot, the second lot was much quicker.
I’m so happy with the result!

Rose Chong‘s on Gertrude Street is a wonderful and colourful place.
Her window displays are often inspiring.
And always wonderful.
And just as we head into football finals, the Archiballs are up in the window.
The perfect marriage of Craft and Footy.
These markets are always brilliant. Heaps of creators you don’t see around the usual traps and music and food and a lovely friendly creative vibe.
