Mitten Colours

There are so many colour options and button choices to make when designing mittens. I have just bought a whole heap of vintage buttons to use, how fun!

Baby Owl Hat

I made another owl hat, this one is for Tristan's baby cousin, Zac. I made the eyes looking in one direction rather than in the middle of the white.

Tea Cosy

I've been feeling a bit unwell the last few days, so making this tea cosy for my friend Hannah has been a nice comforting thing to do while feeling sorry for myself. I'm quite happy with how it's turned out.

Excitingly, I have been mentioned on

Just added to Etsy

I've made quite a few of these scarves this week. I found this super, super soft yarn last weekend and the scarves made from it are so snuggly and soft. My neck sometimes gets itchy from certain yarns, but this one is hypoallergenic so it doesn't irritate my neck. So far I've made them in purple, buttercream and a two-tone charcoal/coral colour. I've just added the purple and buttercream to Etsy.

LIMV Cookbook

Earlier this year in April I had an art piece in a Perth exhibition and a locally made cookbook called "Love is My Velocity". My piece was called '4 Beans', here they are! Four little crocheted beans - top to bottom: Broad Bean, Chick Pea, Black Eyed Pea, Lentil.

New Life Brooch

So I'm making a big effort at home to reduce, reuse and recycle. So in another small way to reduce waste, I have been using up left over wool and crocheted shapes that I was considering throwing away. And I've made this really cute brooch! 

Stockists Melbourne & Pennsylvania

My fingerless mittens now stocked in Curious Oyster, St Kilda. And from 10 August 09 stocked at Bento, Honesdale, Pennsylvania, USA. Yipee!
