Once upon a time I designed a strawberry baby dress layette. Then few years ago I withdrew the pattern off the market, with the intention of ‘revamping’ the whole presentation. I have been asked a good couple of years to have it available again. Due to many reasons I just did not get round to doing it, not intentionally. But on a recent long journey, with hubby at the steering wheel I seized the moment on finally working on my new design I had in my mind, this time all knitted. The original was a combination of knitted and crochet. – So here we have, Strawberry Field Dress Set now available to you make
Sizes given are for 3-6 months | 12 months | 18 months However booties are for 3-6 months and 12 months. But if you want for Newborn to 3 months, make the booties with 2 sizes smaller i.e. instead of 3.5mm needles use 3mm needles or if you using 4mm needles then use 3.5mm needles. The other amendment tip is as the booties is so much smaller then the leaf will not be necessary on the bootie, just make a flower, which acts as a make believe button, after all it is a false strap haha
Don’t you just love Winnie the Pooh Bear and of course the little boy, Christopher Robin? I can so see Christopher Robin wear it, can’t you?
The pattern covers a great age range from 1 to 10 years
Age/Measurements : 1-2 years | 2-3 years | 4-5 years | 6-7 years | 8-10 years

There is just no excuse not to be able to create a turn head short sleeve cardigan top, as this knitting pattern, called “Over the Rainbow” uses basic knitting stitches and super bulky yarn. It is therefore, so quick and easy to make. The end result being absolutely stunning as you can see, but in reality even better
The pattern has a delicate “castle” effect on the bottom of the cardigan hem and the sleeve hem, but this should not deter anyone trying as a relative novice could give it a go. Did I say a novice? the pattern is combined with the beautiful yarn color combination makes it just as exciting for a experienced knitter to enjoy
The cleaver pattern gives you a lovely body shape, even if in reality you don’t really have one, whoop whoop, bonus!
With the pattern you get a matching print-to-make envelope to store the pattern in as you sure will want to make it again.
Although the original was made using Katia Inca, No.104 it can easily be worked using the equally beautiful Sirdar Kiko or Rico Design, Creative Bonbon Super Chunky, all that is left is for your to make the decision which one!

The inspiration for my Geranium Tea Cosy pattern
I just love Geraniums, reminds me of my homeland, Italy. Geraniums everywhere during Spring to Autumn. I have them in my garden terracotta pots & have been meaning to make a tea cosy for over a year now. After a lot of thought on how to go about it (and finding the time) after all the excitement of the announcement of me finally becoming a grandmother, I have finally put my idea into practice. I have the pattern available for you at my website: https://www.tbeecosy.com/product/geranium-tea-cosy, as well at Etsy, at this link: https://www.etsy.com/…/sho…/Nowmine/tools/listings/498499489
I am now busy on the same pattern, but on more subtle colors, for those that like a more ‘calmer’ look, yet not compromising on the ‘realism’ of the plant. I will upload a photo once it is done
I have also attached my inspiration photo I used to make up my pattern, you be the judge, did I get it right?

Oh my, look at this pattern available as a knitting pattern for anyone to make and go down nostalgic lane and continue the much loved character we all love and still enjoy. I have always wondered why Enid Blyton has never been given much recognition, It is a shame, politically correct or not, she is a legend and wrote so many successful novels for children, both older and for the young ones.
This pattern of Noddy comes with so many nice clear photos and easy to follow written instructions.
Although the original
Height when finished size is approximately 35.5 cm (14 inches) from the sole of feet to top of head, without hat and shoes, worked in stocking stitch using DK yarn with size 3mm(US 2 / UK 11) knitting needles, approx. 24 stitches x 32 rows = 10cm x 10cm (4ins x 4ins). Noddy can easily be made bigger by using larger needles & thicker yarn. However the size given is a lovely manageable size, enjoyed by babies to children to play with
