beanie bonanza!



as promised yesterday, a little show and tell of the beanies i've been working on over the last few months...


a bundle of beanies knitted in the moda vera 'tammy' wool. i've made many beanies in this wool before and i love it because it is the ultimate cheat wool! every skein comes in a certain colour scheme and has a variety of textures of yarn, linked together for beanie-knitting ease :D
i got these skeins on super spotlight discount, they normally retail for about $15 and i bought them for under $2!!

and as for these two...

these were knitted from bits and pieces from my stash...


the large majority of the hexagon beanie was directly left over from brianna's blankie.
the rainbow beanie was heavily inspired by kate's, though instead of following the pattern that she used, i just made it up as i went, not because i thought i could, just because i couldn't be bothered getting my laptop at the time. sheer laziness!

and finally, the beanie i was working on yesterday...


this fiery number was again, made entirely from my stash wool. i managed to use up 2 complete scrappy balls! yippee!

my plan is to make my final two beanies to send to the beanie festival in the same manner. maybe different colour schemes though :D

happy friday all!!

Ohi so love the rainbow beanie! I made a tiny Blythe sized one but a grown sized one would be awesome!!

Hi there! Well the Beanie Festival is not yet over but one of your beanies has made its way back to Melbourne! The grandparents flew in from Alice today with beanie surprises. They hadn't even noticed the "Place of Origin" label on the beanie they presented to our Hannah ("Tammy in Blue" - pictured in the post I believe). It comes from OUR VERY OWN SUBURB!!!!! Ha, ha LOL!!

Hannah loves it by the way! We'll keep an eye on the blog.
