Beautiful Bonnets


I was lucky enough to be asked to test knit a new pattern by Aussie Designer Amanda Keeys.
I have her wonderful book and have knit a lot of the beautiful beanies in there so was super excited to have the chance to test knit for her!

This photo won't show off too much, I will let Amanda's photos speak for themselves when she releases the pattern.  Keep an eye out for it, you will want to knit this one :)

Baby Maya in Norway will get this lovely bonnet, I hope I get to see a photo of her in it soon!

I bought some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran from Tangled Yarns because I could not find any 10ply locally. Tangled Yarns is worth a mention because I love any store with a good online shop and super fast postage.  I loved the Cashmerino too!


With the left over Cashmerino I made another Bonnet, also an Amanda Keeys pattern called Sugar or Spice.  Two balls of wool, Two bonnets.  Perfect!

This one will be gifted to baby Adelaide, or Baby Hadelaide as Possum calls her.
Adelaide's Mum Bonnie told me I needed to knit something for them so I hope this is a nice surprise in their mailbox this week.
