my creative space



My creative space has been documented today by my little miss, Tully. Loves a bit of camera action she does, and has quite a good eye for it too. Out of every 20 shots there's always a few good shots, great composition and in focus to boot!

Anyway I digress, today in my creative space a bit of knitting has been going on. Me and knitting have never gone to well together but my clever sis, Tikki has been visiting and she always inspires me to pick up the needles. I was going to have a go at one of her rainbow dresses but once the stitch marker came out and there was talk of increases and stuff, I threw it in and opted for a scarf. Easy knitting and me are great friends. One day I may have a go at a rainbow but for now scarf's are great, and much needed to boot. Double winner!

And why do I need to knit anyway when the ever clever and generous sis gifts me with awesome knits. This visit was populated with quite a few knitting gifts, however, the most fabulous were the very popular milo vest and a very special little rainbow dress. Tikki has recently released the pattern for the milo over on ozebaby and it's selling like hotcakes. Asher's features the owl cable but there are many more cable styles to choose from. See why it's so popular? And apparently super easy for beginners, although I wouldn't know as it does incude stitchmarkers and omg cables!!!



And now for the rainbow dress for the very sweet Sage. Gorgeous yes! I haven't tried it on her yet, it's still drying after blocking.



This very special little rainbow has a few variations to the normal pattern though. Check out the oh so cute sleeve and a little picot hem. It will also feature a little ribbon through the bodice when I get of my butt and find some. Modelling shots to come soon.



It sure is the weather for knitting. Brrrrrr winter has set in down here, I reckon there may be even more knitting creative spaces over at Kirsty's.

Great pic Tully! I'm a scarf knitter too. ;) Wish I had a talented knitter for a sister though. Lucky you!!

I'm not so much for the needles. The milo & the rainbow are super cute.

How gorgeous - I love this little dress :) Are these wooden knitting needles?, would love to try them - they look more 'organic' to use. Lovely blog!
