Giant apple

After seeing this apple by the amazing Anne-Claire Petit, then this one from Country Road and then this from the Land of Nod, and because I am becoming like the mother in Goodness Gracious Me, I immediately thought "I can make it at home for nothing!".
It turned out to be a bit more involved than that but I am so happy with this giant.
I filled it with plush toys and extra pillows, an idea I got from this video.

thumbsucker mittens (with pattern)

I always forget how cold the cold is Upstate New York. Being a thumbsucker, Antea won't keep her mittens on for long so I made these that have the option for the little thumb to be in or out. I posted the pattern here.

chunky mustard jumper

I finally got to use the beautiful Beiroa yarn I got last year at Retrosaria when I was in Lisbon. I wish I had gotten more! I ran out of yarn so the jumper is more like a t-shirt. I wrote the pattern here. The best part is it goes beautifully with Antea's Mabo kids playsuit.

knitted pants

Knitted pants made from beautiful yarn Margarida brought me from Portugal. Wrote up the pattern if you want to try it out.

I crossed a Wiksten top with a Butterwick vintage jumpsuit patterns and this is what I got. (Fabric from Sew Green)

strawberry jumper

Antea has been getting a lot of compliments on this jumper and I wrote down the pattern as some people have asked about it. I used Knit Picks Gloss DK in Scarlet that my dear friend Margarida gave me.
