Show and Tell - Some Sneaking gift Giving


As I said a few posts ago, I've been busy creating some sneaky gifts.
There's been alot of Crochet Bunting love going on at Debs house,
And I loved being part of that



Not only did I get to give, which always feels great, I also challenged myself with this little heart decoration.
I had to make it a few times before I finally got the hang of it, but it turned out pretty cute once I did. 



The pattern was from the Simply Crochet Magazine that Leonie gifted me when I was in Christchurch ( so generous : )  And when I saw via instagram that Deb wanted to learn more than just a chain stitch, I popped in the magazine too :)  Also I just read that Make Cafe are starting to stock that Magazine...so I need to get my hands on another one!


Here's the other little gift that I can show you now, 
it's a cute wee vest called a Milo.



I love Tikki Knits patterns, but this is my first Milo.  It's such a cute and quick little vest to knit up.  

I took alot of knitting projects with me to Christchurch, but I found the patterns I'd chosen were not conducive to knitting while chatting, and I kept making a heap of mistakes....so Deb passed me this pattern, and a big ball of wool.....and the first thing that sprang to my mind, was lovely Max and her gorgeous little boy Findlay...


I was even lucky enough to give him some cuddles while I was there....so precious, and the first time I've held a little baby boy for a long time...it brought back a lot of lovely memories.

And because owls have a special meaning in our family I decided to leave my mark on this little vest too....

The little owl is one of the cable options on the pattern

Also, so I didn't leave out Findlays big sister, I included this little headband I made last week....


Max tells me its not been taken off since she received it, and she also found another use for it as a pirate flower power patch! Cute :)

I love that vest - do you think something like that could be crocheted (waggles eyebrows)?. I think the colour is yummy too.
