Knitting Pretty

CRAFT FIND OF THE WEEK




There has been quite a bit of talk about knitting around the hml campfire this week. We've spotted some lovely tea cosies over at Poppalina and we're frantically trying to finish up some woolly projects of our own before winter is over (mind you winter never ends in Melbourne - one looooong cold 6 months!)

We'd love to take the credit for this wonderful cap - hand knitted with fair aisle supremecy and fantastic crochet finish but alas our stitchin skills aren't this bitchin.

The maker Victoria Haslam of Pygmalion knits is one of the loveliest people we know and boy can she wield two sticks and a piece of string.

It's Ramona's driving hat - she looks splendid in it. It keeps her noggin warm and stops all her ideas from evaporating. It's a magic hat.

God, it's lovely. Pygmalion knits? Really? Why don't I know about this?!

Victoria is one of those people who doesnt have a big web presence and does alot of her sales thru word of mouth. She often has a stall at the Hawthorn Craft market and they are also on sale at Craft Vic. So talented!
