Sunday Summary

Quite a productive week on the knitting and sewing front.

A dress and yellow 'Mary Jane' shoes for Tui

Plus a navy pair of shoes.

A shawl and a hat for Hitty Madge

A new dress

I also finished this one that had been waiting quite some time for snaps to be sewn on.

Madeline of course got her two new swimsuits, which she was wearing in this post here.

A pretty summer dress

A dress with some of my left over variegated NZ wool.

Plus a purple lacy dress.

I also used the above pattern to make Little Miss a dress.

I knitted a little cardigan and hat for Poppy

It matches the dress I made a few weeks ago.

Lastly I made Peggy Sue a summer dress.  It seems ages since I did any sewing so it was good to have a some time on Saturday to do some, which is when I also made the dresses for Hitty Madge and Madeline shown above.

I doubt I will  have any time for sewing this week, but probably will be able to get some knitting done in the evenings.  I have a KAL I am joining in on and hoping to make a start on that tomorrow evening.

More Tiny Knitting plus a little Sewing.

I forgot to post this last week, so now it is an extra long post as a catch up!

I've already shown the things I have made during the week for Madeline on this blog post here:  Madeline's Wardrobe.

I have also made some things for the Heartstrings dolls:

Sweater & Hat for my Heartstring doll Thomas.

A sweater & hat set for the Heartstrings dolls - which is now in my Etsy shop and can be found here

A sweater & hat set for a friend's Heartstring doll.

A burgandy sweater & hat set for Heartstrings doll knitted with pure 100% NZ Merino wool.

These sweaters also fit the Makies dolls as shown on Wren below.

A cardigan and hat for Poppy knitted with one of my favourite colour combinations of NZ wool.

A cardigan and sweater set made with a pure wool crepe yarn.

A warm hat and cape for Hitty Madge.

A cardigan for Wren.

As I forgot to post this, I will add the last weeks knitting and sewing projects to it.

I knitted a few 'Lyra' hats.

Hitty Moana shows off hers, and thinks it brings out the colour of her eyes.

Hitty Madge got a shawl as well with hers.

Madeline likes that hers matches her sweater.

I did a tiny bit of sewing...  three pairs of trousers for Madeline

These are her favourite!

A short sleeve cardigan which will also go with her dress and hat set that I made the other week.

I also made her blue apron she was wearing yesterday.

I offered to test knit a pattern for a lady on a group I belong to.

The first stages...


Modelled by Saige.

This was a very clear and well written pattern.

There is a hat to go with it, which I will start tonight.
