My Creative Space

Introducing my new design, Merino Wool Bomber Hats.

A sweet soft Bomber hat to keep your gorgeous one warm, made from soft New Zealand merino and lined in a contrasting colour. An affordable option giving you two hats for the price of one.

I developed these hats after the frustration of our daughter getting cold ears and I loved the cute knitted hats in this style. So I trialed a merino fabric version with great success we got eight orders in the first week.
These sweet hats seem to stay on longer than other beanie styles, this is maybe because they are not quite as tight fitting.

With twelve colours to choose from, you are sure to find a colour combination that matches most of your babies clothes.
Current colours stocked include Cream, Charcoal grey, Spinach green, Ruby red, Dark chocolate, Dusky pink, Turquiose, Olive Green, Berry pink, Navy blue, light pink and sky blue.

Five sizes are available including

A unique gift for new babies or any babies in your life

I am currently developing larger sizes and welcome any interest.
Custom orders are always welcome.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions at

Made to order for just $19

These boots are made for walking

Our gorgeous girl learnt to walk last week, we are so proud of her. She is still a bit wobbly but getting more steady by the day. She is quite pleased herself, and loves all the praise.

Congratulations Honey you are so clever and special.

She is wearing my first knitted FO (finished object) of the year, I know terrible but I seem to be easily distracted hence the six or so WIPs (work in progress) on the go.

Anyway the pattern I used is Tikki’s well written Eden’s Adam.

It can be knitted up in 4ply, 8ply and 10ply cotton or wool yarns. With an amazing 14 different sizes NB up to child size 10.

Tessa’s version above I knitted size 18m with my first try of hand dying which I was quite pleased with. And Shepherd baby wool 4ply in a coordinating lime green. I knitted the ruffle by increasing kfb of each stitch and carried on in a lace pattern which I think was lost in the multicoloured yarn, also it have sit better if I had knitted the ruffle twice as long. Oh well we live and learn, next time I will know. It was my second time using circular needles and I am hooked it seems so much faster and smoother than straights.
