Off to Craft 2.0

Excited! I am flying down to Wellington to partake in Craft 2.0 even tomorrow as Coco Kids have a stall for the second time. We have all been busy amongst the busy-ness of our family lives.

20 items

Here is a funny photo that just looks bizarre! I am taking my daughters doll to demo some of the items…here she is in my suitcase. It just looks wrong!

#17 Blogtober Fest: Eden’s Adam

Oh my gosh! I had a shock when I realsied I hadn’t put details up of this custom knit I have had for a while! Crazy and silly me!

So I have finally added a page amongst the other custom knit items for the Eden Adam & Eve set designed by tiKKi. Tikki is one of my favourite knitting designers and I already have a few of her designs that I can custom knit – Milo vest, bloom and rainbow dress.

The adam vest/singlet is a great wee top that is unisex and perfect for layering or wearing on it’s own. I have knitted a few for the upcoming Craft 2.0 event in Lower Hutt. These are in cotton and one is in a cotton/bamboo mix.

Here are two I did for my girls for winter wear:

Gorgeous top isn’t it!  🙂

Introducing Eden

My previous post was a of a test knit for tiKKi that was at that point of no name…

It has been named now as Eden. Have a look here for photos of tiKKi’s Eden.

Eden's Adam vest

It is a fantastic knit that is large on sizing and large on possibilities. Eden caters from new born to size 10. The pattern is a two part pattern that is either a vest/singlet (called Eden’s Adam) or can grow into a dress (called Eden’s Eve). There are many design features to add your own design touch to the item – pockets, stripes (bodice or hem or the body), lace for the hem, embedded heart pattern plus others.

I am also pleased to announce that myself and Julia and Ali from Coco Kids are able to custom knit this pattern for you if you are short of knitting time or skills.

I have knitted another Eden’s Adam for Ariana in a wonderful soft wool in a variegated wool from Whimisical. It is actually a 10ply yarn but it still knitted well.

Being cheeky!

Neat rib hem that can be done in a stripe way.

For those that are kinitter’s check out tiKKi’s blog as she is holding a KAL (knit along) and a competition. See her post here for more information.

Here is a photo of Makayla wearing her Eden’s Adam:
