Froyo Hat – Knitting Pattern

froyo1

This is the second in my new set of 4 patterns using KnitPicks Wonderfluff yarn! I love the shape of this one, anything with huge pompoms is the best!

The pattern is available on KnitPicks and Ravelry!

froyo2

Froyo is a simple hat pattern with earflaps featuring a 2 colour rib. The tapered shape is created by starting the work flat then joining in the round and working short rows at the back. With an easy to memorise stitch repeat, this fun, fashionable and very quick knit is great for last minute gifts.

Lattice Beanie – Knitting Pattern

The third in my series of hats using KnitPicks WonderFluff yarn! This uses my current favourite stitch pattern and I love it as a longer slouchy beanie.

The pattern is available on KnitPicks and Ravelry!

Lattice is a simple beanie pattern featuring a slipped stitch diamond design. The hat is worked in the round, bottom up and can be worn with the ribbing section flipped up for a fitted look or down for a slouched style. With an easy to memorise stitch repeat, this is a fun, fashionable and very quick knit which is great for last minute gifts.

Quick DIY Mint Glasses

_1280932

A quick mini DIY this morning with photos I found on the depths of my harddrive. But no I will most likely not be starting to do regular tutorials again, I just don’t have the energy for them right now.

You need:

  • Glasses
  • Paint
  • Decorations
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Nail file

_1280378

This one isn’t so hard… just use the nail file to scratch up the surface of the frames so the paint sticks and pain them one section at a time using thin coats.

_1280379

If you don’t like the finish you can topcoat with clear nail polish or PVA glue._1280391

Then just stick on some little flowers!

_1280392 Done!

Mornington Peninsular Trip!

A long time ago we took a trip to the Mornington Peninsular with Celina and Toby but I never ended up putting the photos up *_*

Obligatory goodbye photo with Lottie!

It was so scenic but WINDY so all of my photos ended up like this…

We were so fancy with our non-alcoholic champagne!

James cooked up the mother of all steaks from Costco. Seriously this thing was like a kilo of steak *_*_1330256

And yet he still managed to eat the whole thing!

The next day we spent chilling out. Everyone else got up super early to go see the sunset but I stayed in bed._1330324 _1330366 _1330377

They came home with some flowers which made them waking me up at like 4am slightly more tolerable haha!_1330393 _1330398 _1330402

This is how you should do knitting with breakfast!

_1330408 _1330418

James cooked the entire trip for us and it was awesome!

The next morning I woke up with a spider bite on one of my eyes so I spend a lot of the day like this…

_1330559

But it didn’t stop me from knitting so I did some mini projects with my handspun yarn.

And then it was time to wander off home!_1330607 _1330619 I love this bag from Typo so much but it really doesn’t fit ANYTHING in it >_>

How cute are these tiny little berry things??

_1330677

I don’t know what they are but I know I want a garden full of them!

_1330681

We could hear the little penguins rustling about in their burrows but couldn’t see any._1330691

And on the way home we stopped off at a road stop which was selling beans with salt and butter in a cup and it was the bessssst snack I’ve had in a long time!
