{Yarn Along} Milo vest and an upcycled hot water bottle cover

IMG_1368 (1)IMG_1360 (1)Oh hello Autumn! Oh, this is my all time favourite time of year. What is there not to love?

So,before I get romantic about this wonderful season I’ll quickly interrupt myself and talk about what I’ve been making. What is better for a toddler in autumn that a knitted vest? Still to0 warm for thick winter coats but too chilly for just thin cotton tops, vests are my go to for small people. Plus, they look darn cute! I cast this Milo. The pattern is very easy- the kind you can follow while watching TV with a glass of wine-and I like the no fuss for buttons.

The hot water bottle cover is for Beth’s birthday. I made it using an old jumper and shirt that are too small for her now. It’s not finished but I think it will turn out OK. I’ll give a fuller update once it’s completed.


I’m also reading Jane Eyre at the moment and I’m really enjoying it. After I’m done I want to watch the BBC version.

Are you reading or crafting anything you are excited about just now?

    Love the Milo, and what a great idea to upcycle the sweater.
