Indi's wrap.

I don't think I ever showed you the Leonie wrap I crocheted for Indi.

I crocheted it at a farmers' market a few weeks ago and it kept me so warm as it rested on my knees.

It is just perfect for the kid who lives in the coldest part of the universe but gets overheated when she wears too many clothes.

And she actually wears it. The kid who wants to dress like a skatergirl actually wears something that I made. Yay!

I used Cleckheaton's Folklore in colour number 5 and had help from Tania with the kid dimensions.

The butterfly brooch is on loan from Bren's Mum. I bought it for her a few years ago fully intending to make a few more for myself and for pressies but never did.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Bren and Indi have gone to a clearing sale and I am heading to Ballarat to a wool/knitting sale to stock up on some essentials.

Oh and I'm on Ravelry. Finally. I'm still figuring it all out. I have six friends! If you have any handy Ravelry hints, I'd love to hear them. Come and say 'hi', my name is Foxslane.

  3. I love the wrap, how beautiful. The brooch is very pretty, even Isabelle loved it after spying it in the photo. I hope you have a great day in Ballarat even though it will probably be freezing cold. Have fun stocking up too. Ravelry is great too, lots of fun ways to find patterns. I will explain a bit more when I see you if you like.

  26. Oh, it's lovely! Would it be too much to ask after the kid measurements? I'd love to give it a try in crochet for my own girl. I understand if you are much too busy but, thought I'd ask.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
