I knit this using the Soft Folds pattern by Amanda Jones from Issue 117 of Simply Knitting Magazine UK. I used Lion Brand Fishermen's 100% Wool with natural oils and Paton's Lace with acrylic, wool and mohair doubled up. It is so soft, squishy and warm!

I made these socks with 9 different kinds of sock yarn in a moss stitch pattern. They remind me of recycled sari silk yarn--so rustic and colourful! Please visit my etsy shop! www.etsy.com/shop/Beatrixknits

The hat and booties are based on the pattern R0121 in the Regia Journal 004. I added a pompom because I just love making them! I also added lots of ribbon (which can be cut down to be more practical if necessary) because it is just so beautiful! I also made an extra pair of shoelaces since, again, not sure how practical ribbon actually is even tho it looks great! This mitten, bootie and bonnet set is newborn size and made from super soft Knitpicks Chroma. You'd never believe it is mostly wool since it is so silky soft!

I made these lacy fingerless mitts to match a poncho I made ages ago! The pattern is from Australian Creative Knitting Magazine Issue 17. The yarn is Lion Brand Kool Wool in 149 Dark Charcoal Grey--sadly discontinued. Luckily I think I have enough to make a couple more pairs!

These are the UuuuHu! vottem√łnster pattern by Stinene. They are the softest, squishiest things I've ever made. The background yarn is Adriafil Genziana 100% Merino gorgeousness. The owl pattern is String Theory Caper Sock 80% Merino and 10% Cashmere, which I previously wasn't thrilled about (due to cost vs. number of breaks) but love it in these little gems.
