Autumn ramblings....

It's my favorite season of the year and I like nothing better than feeling the first chilly nips settle in the night air, only to brush against your cheek the next morning..........

 I've been busy......I'm always busy lol
My children are thriving, my cooking and baking skills are improving everyday with each new recipe I master, my husband is off for a three day residential school (lab practicals in chemistry) - actually it will be the longest time we've ever spent apart. I will miss him!
My knitting needles have been on fire - Not much time until the colder weather starts and my children are clamoring for knitteds.
If you would ever like information on my projects please see my ravelry project page under Kristie1983

Some knits for our upcoming July baby - if bubs is a girl I'll be adding some bows to the lego inspired set.

 This is Angelus's first request fulfilled - I love how the yarn pooled and spiraled all the way around the top :)

And here is a test knit for a ravelry designer - little knight newborn hat.
A lovely unisex knit - I made mine in a cotton/acrylic and merino.....machine washable and oh so soft.

**As a thank you to all my blog readers I am going to give this wee hat away.**

Just leave your comment below and a way of contacting you if you win and I'll do a random drawing sometime next week - open to worldwide......tell your friends!

appliques and a newborn crochet project

Appliques to add to any project or craft. 

Have been wanting to make this pattern for a while....I made a few mods - made the sleeves shorter as well as the dress and also added a round of DC and a round of HDC to the bottom.
It's done in a mercerized cotton which holds it's shape so well yet is super soft.
