Kye’s Milo Vest is Finished!

Today I finished Kye’s Milo vest! I love how it looks on him. I did make it a size larger than his age so that he could wear it for a couple of winters. He really enjoyed showing it off when he noticed I was taking photos:) I knitted it in a cotton DK from Colourspun it is such a wonderful and easy pattern.
Caiden, who was sitting nearby, noticed that Kye was wearing his new vest and asked me when I could knit him something:) He has asked me to knit him a jersey for winter so I had better start now. He has decided he would like a long sleeve sweater, mostly moss green with flecks of brown within the green…. Well, I will have to mix up some dye first and give this a try! How exciting! A knitting request! I can’t wait to start. I am really enjoying knitting these large projects, the only problem is that once I pick up my knitting, I can’t seem to put it down… and there are so many other things that need doing, like cooking, cleaning etc…  Does anyone else suffer from the same predicament? Off to look for a sweater pettern… any ideas?

I hope you are all having a peaceful weekend:) xo


WIP Wednesday… The Milo Vest…

I have been knitting on this Milo vest, off of Ravelry, for Kye since the weekend… I love it. It is knitted completely in the round and just look at the clever neck and shoulder straps, no seaming… how wonderful!! There are so many other things I should be doing right now, but I just can’t resist the temptation to knit on this project, I am sure I am not alone in thinking this, am I? Knitting is so much more fun than… unpacking the dishwasher… isn’t it? Oh I definately think so:) I just have a few more rows to go and then I think I will cast on for another in a different colourway. I am knitting this vest in Colourspun DK Cotton. I also love the very subtle cable that runs down the one side… too sweet…


Dyeing Workshop

Today was an amazing day! My friend Sue and I drove through to Heidelberg and attended a wonderful dyeing workshop at the Colourspun Studio with Carle’ of Nurturing Fibres. It was lovely, we met quite a few people off of Ravelry and had a grand day dyeing yarn together…

Colourspun Studio

I bought this cotton from Colourspun and I have decided to use it to make Kye a Milo Vest, a sweet pattern off of Ravelry. I have already cast on and I am so looking forward to knitting tonight:)

Tomorrow I will be hosting a yarn giveaway from Colourspun, have a wonderful day xo Linda
