FO Friday....... Flax.....

Yay! Its all done and what a quick and easy design. Highly recommend this one as a stress free knitting project. Please excuse the lack of fancy picture taking. I admit I quickly snapped this with my phone last night as I was heading for bed.

For those that missed the last post..

Pattern: Flax by Tincanknits (free in all sizes from baby to adults/unisex)

Yarn: Moda Vera Tweed purchased from Spotlight (Was really nice to knit with considering it was not pure wool, extremely soft and squishy)

Now what to make next? I unravelled my husbands hoodie which was too small and need to either re-make it (did not love the large needles at all) or find something that will use the same amount of yarn. Ah decisions decisions. I have to admit that I have already tried 2 other patterns and after getting half the back done ... unravelled again. I also have a couple of things that need sewing together that are currently blocking. Should probably finish those off first. :-)

Have a great weekend all. Love and Light to you. xox

WIP Wednesday.....

On the needles at the moment...... Flax by Tincanknits, in Moda Vera Tweed....

Simple but effective sweater, knitted in the round from the neck down. Great handbag project as its nice and easy going. Enjoying it very much and taking it out and about with me. I am actually almost finished so maybe I can show it to you on Friday 

There has also been a fair bit of stitching going on as most of the time its too warm to play with yarn.

Take care lovelies. Hope you are well. 

Hugs, Love and Light xoxoxox

Charlotte and Moon

Hello my lovely friends,

Its been a while since I have dropped by, hope you are all well and have enjoyed the holiday season. Its nice and hot in Australia at the moment and we have been enjoying some amazing beach weather on the coast. While I would love to share some of my latest projects, I actually popped by to share some news about my oldest daughter Ashlee today.

Ashlee is joining the kickstart program and looking for pledges from as little as $1 to help her get started with expanding her home studio fashion label - Charlotte and Moon based in Sydney, Australia. Her short video explains it all and if you scroll down afterwards there is another short video which is taken at one of our local beaches on the Central Coast and showcases her gorgeous models wearing her new range of clothes called Euphoria.

There is absolutely no obligation to pledge and you can just have a look, leave some feedback if you like or just watch the videos and have a look. We would be very grateful if you could share the link on your facebook, blogs, websites etc if you like what you see to share it around. Pledge's from $20  also receive gifts from the store or items from the new range.  This dress is my personal favourite... its a little longer on me, I don't have long legs like the gorgeous model. ;-)

All details are on the link.  Thank you in advance to those who are able to help and if you have a few minutes to spare.. enjoy......
