The knitting bug hasn't left me and isn't likely to any time soon. Likewise, the yarn dyeing bug :)
The pattern is Granny's Favourite by Tikki. The yarn is hand dyed by me, merino 8ply.
It's my first attempt at lace knitting, and though I had to enlist a little help from Tas to read the instructions properly, it wasn't hard in the end.
I got some lovely little heart buttons from here.
It's a snug fit on Gem, but luckily her 2 younger sisters will be more than willing to take it off her hands next season :)
I've been working on so much stuff lately it makes me giddy to think of it all! You could say I'm well and truly immersed in everything handmade. There isn't much I can show you yet, but before too long I can reveal what's been taking up my creative time.
