Drop Stitch Scarf

Still trying to use the stash, I had 2 balls of Colinette Tagliatelli Merino tape leftover from a jumper.  The wool is now discontinued, but so pretty.
I needed a 40th birthday present for a dear friend, so thought she would love these colours, and she does get cold in Melbourne Winter's.

School Beanies

Still using up left over Rico Baby Wool. It seems to be breeding in my wool basket, it just doesn't seem to ever run out!

Using double wool, I knit these 2 beanies for Alexander and Cameron for school. for some reason, Alexander's red hat has ended up pointy, and Cameron's is round. They both like their hats, so I am not frogging Alexander's. they will be great on cold Winter mornings when they go to school.

Pattern is Seaman's Cap by Brenda Zuk
Wool: Rico Design Baby Classic DK
Needles: 4.5mm and 5mm

Nachbarin Geschenken, Kurbis und Erdberren

Using inspiration from a couple of knitting patterns, I mmodified them to make 2 small hats and dresses for our adorable neighbours in Berlin.  Of course, they also needed a beanie each for themselves for those cold Berlin Winter's.  Naturally they had to be matching!!
