What I've been knitting, part 2

Next up are three samples I made for Hannah Fettig's Little Knitbot collection. She took some of her most popular designs and scaled them down for wee folk.

Bitty Breezy
 

Fledgling Featherweight


Wispy Cardi





The yarn for these sweaters is a new one for me, The Fibre Company Meadow. It's a beautiful blend of merino, llama, silk, linen. The different fibres take in the dye at varying intensities, creating a yarn that has a lot of depth, which is a quality that The Fibre Company excels at. It's got a lovely hand: drapey, heathery, shimmery, with a touch of rustic. And oh, the colours!

(Thank you Hannah for letting me knit for you and use your photos!)

So cute! Those little sweaters are darling! I bet they were fun to knit. The Fibre Company let me knit a sample one of their new shawls in Meadow and I fell in love. I need to get some for myself.

Oh these are adorable, I find it difficult to find patterns ( sorry for the repetition) for little girls that don't involve unnecessary frills or strange shapes.

You HAVE been busy! I love these mini versions, I'm knitting one of those for myself as it happens, although mine will be a little larger!!
Loving your Roman photos too, we were there last summer. It's an amazing city, that's for sure.

Oh my gosh, the cuteness!! A genius idea to scale down the sizes for girls. The Wispy is my favorite on that adorable little girl. She looks a bit like Suri Cruise.

Hello there nicole, I just read your message over on lori's blog and had to come over and see your blog. I'm so glad that I did. It's really beautiful.

I love your Italian photographs...our favourite country besides England where we live.

I'm so pleased to find your lovely space.
