I haven't been idle

See! I've made a pair of baby trews! From Last Minute Knitted gifts, knitted in Rowan Denim. I think I will give these to a friend who has recently had a baby and make some more for me to keep later on. This is Emilia's surprise fairy dress for her birthday. I went through loads of boxes in the loft, got all my material out and had enough to make her this. It's not finished yet but I have a couple of weeks yet.
Something else for Emilia...The Boho Blocks jumper from I'm making the smallest size but adding a row of dc/sc around the edge to make each block slightly bigger. I may have to make a few extra for her long arms!

I googled this jumper to see if anyone else had made one, the only useful link I found was this !!!
This is the beginnings of Maddie's surprise fairy dress for Emilia's birthday. Knitpicks shine sport worsted, this is a glorious yarn, so soft and comfortable in the hands. I'm going to make her a skirt of taffeta, with an over skirt of tulle and net to wear with this top.
Time for bed now - I promise to be more chatty next week. Have a great weekend xxx

Cute pants!! That dress is gorgeous! The top of Maddie's dress is very pretty! Can't wait to see the rest! :)

It's all very pretty, but that fairy dress... What a lucky girl. I know I would have given an arm to have a dress like that when I was her age!

Wow, nice pants! And nice everyting else too!

I just got an order confirmation on yarn for two denim drawstring pants myself. Will be a nice bring along project for me, though I think the crotch join gave me some trouble on the first pair I made.

Nice to see you blog again. Are you feeling better?

my much work, you must be feeling a bit better? I love all of your work and those girls are so lucky to have such a creative Mummy. I can't wait to take photos of them in their new dresses! Those little trousers looks like they were fun to knit, I really want that book! lol...x Trust me to get in on the google act, hasn't anyone else made a boho blocks cardi or jumper??
