At last I’ve published the pattern for Stella, the womens’ and girls’ version of the baby bonnet on the cover of my book, minus the chin strap.


It’s available on Ravelry here 

and is named after my friend Anna’s daughter. Isn’t she lovely?        


This is a quick post, as I’m off to New Zealand tomorrow.

I’ll be in touch from there. In the meantime, I wanted to share this photo with you. It’s my friend Gilda’s grandson in a sailor suit she knitted for him. It begs for one of those “if only my grandmother would stop knitting” captions, doesn’t it…..?

With my thoughts now turning to  New Zealand, I’m looking forward to some familiar sights, like these villas in my old stomping ground.

Look for my post nest week when I’ll be writing about an exciting new book I’ve been knitting from.

There will be a giveaway, too.
