My creative space.

I got up early this morning to block my latest project the Fia Hat from MillaMia's Wonderland book. This required making a toddler head out of a towel, which kind of seems to work...but I'd be glad for any tips on how to do this?

This is my first attempt at colour work, and I've got to say I'm loving myself sick over it!

More creative spaces over here...


  1. Make a toddler head out of a towel? Can't you blow up a balloon as a substitute? or am I missing something???

    Lovely coloured wools!

  2. I don't think you need any tips. It looks wonderfully smooth fabric. Colourwork is fabulous and creates and effect way beyond the knitting energy put in. I think the Lopi circular yoke vest would make a wonderful knit in this wool and the adult version is perfect for Canberra - warm on the shoulders but arms free.

  3. I love the colors you are using :)

  4. Your colourwork is beautiful- well done!

  5. And when you start importing Aran Weight and want to tie in with your blog name, you could knit this!!! And use your own noggin for blocking :)

  6. Could you use a 'ham'? They are tough round shapes used for ironing curves in tailoring and sewing, for men's jackets etc. I think they have sawdust inside.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I especially love it when I get comments. Have a great day, suzy xoxo
