  1. 5th May also included a you made Drake of course! 😉

  2. Hats off to you, Kat! I totally haven’t got round to doing it this year. And there was a minor concern about too many repeats from last year! I love all your makes and how lucky to have an amazing knitting mum! The loveliest me-made accessory of course is the one sitting on your hip! xxx

    • Aww, thank you! 🙂

      I must admit, I am somewhat concerned about boring everyone with these posts. Major wardrobe crisis going on at the moment, argh!!! Need to make more things, super-fast!!!

  3. I wish I had mum-made-cardigans. She tells me adults cardigans are much too boring to sew and she’ll stick to baby knitting, thank you very much

    • Haha yeah my mum spends most of her time doing baby knitting as well, but occasionally I get lucky. Especially if I buy the wool and choose an interesting/semi-complicated pattern. 😉

  4. Hi Kat, thanks for entering my giveaway. You’ve got a really interesting blog, I have just started following you. Looking forward to reading through your posts once it dies down over at my place.
