Another Boronia :-)

Hi :-)

The 3 month version of Boronia is off the needles :-)
It is worked in yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills backroom.  
A beautifully soft 5ply, in a colour which is a little hard to capture.
But I think the photo is very close

And here is all three versions of Boronia worked in different weights of yarn and size needles - 4ply Baby Blossom, 5ply Purple-Pink and 8ply Tanzanite

Pattern is available in my Ravelry store or on Etsy (links in side bar)

Have a wonderful weekend

Aussie Maria Pattern - Boronia

Hi everyone
Although it has been a very long time since my last cardigan pattern was released, I have about a zillion half started / half worked out patterns sitting on my computer which just need finishing touches and final reworks

A friend enquired if a new one was on the horizon and I thought ....... just do it ....... get one finished.
So I relooked at all of them and .......

I totally reworked one and changed it (read simplify here) :-)

So here is Boronia on Ravelry or Boronia on Etsy

This is the Newborn, long sleeve version using Bendigo Woollen Mills 4ply Luxury

And this is the 6 month, short sleeve version using Bendigo Woollen Mills Stellar in the beautiful colour, Tanzanite (pity its no longer available)
Love, love, love this!!!!

One written pattern, but using different weights of yarn and different size needles to create the sizing.

A photo of the 3 month, 5 ply version to follow

Just in time for this months Knit4Charity's donations - Women's Life Centre (NSW) who are after clothing for newborns to 6 months.

Desert Pea Pattern


Ive just uploaded a new pattern to Ravelry & Etsy
You may notice the link on the sidebar

I hope some of you like it and wish to try it
Its fairly simple, with just one lace row

The name I chose for it was the colour of the yarn of the first sample - 
Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Luxury called Desert Pea.  
Sadly the colour is discontinued.
But I love the second one I made in Ruby :-)
So expect to see lots popping up here ;-)

Baby Girl or Boy?

A new grandchild will be born in September.
But what its sex is no-one knows - except Mummy & Daddy
So I'm hedging my bets and knitting for both

A Girl Set - made from Bendigo Luxury 4ply
A beautiful new, free pattern from a Taswegian :-)

A Boy Set

And since I have plenty of time and a "little" of this wool in my stash ;-)
I listed them in my Madeit shop, Made For Little Ones (link in sidebar)

Have a great weekend
