Tomorrow my daughter will start the preschool. She is exited and looking forwards. So, to finish our preparation we made few name tags for her jackets.
She choose all the colours and for the first time I stopped myself saying ‘I don’t think these colours look nice together’, because she did it just perfect. Well, she is growing. Continue reading →

Hello, to all my Dear readers!
It’s been a while from my last post – apologies for that.

After I made a bow necklace to my daughter, I had to make something similar to my son as well. So, I made a bow tie.
Knitted bow tie
I knitted the bow the same way as in my last project ‘Knitted Bow Necklace (with tutorial)’. Just for this piece I added half fabric-half elastic band (which goes around the neck). And instead of wrapping the middle of the bow with a yarn I used a short fabric band. Continue reading →
For me, knitwear usually relates with winter season but I love to knit and I can’t stop myself from knitting. So, I set myself a goal to knit something for summer season and not a sweater.
I had lots of thoughts and this is what I knitted:
