Wee beret, new colour and new skills!

This is a mish mash post about some things I have done.


I quickly knitted up a XS Dolce Beret for Ariana as she kept pleading me to make her one once I had finished mine. Here it is modelled on both gils. I must say it looks mega cute on them.

This is a custom knit pattern of mine that goes from XS to large to fit my noggin & bigger. Check out my custom knitting page or the tabs along the right for more information.


Ariana was gifted a rainbow dress last year that she still fits but the colour didn’t do much for her. So a week or so ago I decided to dye it using my acid powder dyes from Tilla.

So it went from this:

Rainbow Dress before

To this:

and after with a ribbon added.

Looks lots better on Ariana now!

I have recently learnt to crochet! Admiteddly I am very much a beghinner but I am loving learning it and having a laugh at myself along the way! 😆 As you do!!!! I can now add wee flowers onto items to make items extra special.

So watch this space and see what I can come up with. 🙂 Sorry no photos as yet! I don’t where the flowers I have done have gone as the girls love playing with them.

Meanwhile I am placing another wool order tomorrow as have assessed orders coming up – Busy! I really should grow another pair of super fast knitting arms!!! Or learn continental knitting as that is super fast just not sure I can master it.
