It has been a while since I have had exciting mail. but in the last week I have had some undyed yarn arrive, as well as this gorgeous bundle from Red Riding Hood Yarns. I’m in love xx

 

I cannot believe I forgot to blog these! I mean seriously, they are such great patterns, and such lovely yarn……how could it slip my mind?

This gorgeous little top is called “Hine”, and it is a gorgeous pattern from the ever-so-talented Kelly over at Knit.So.Quaint
I have previously blogged one of these gorgeous Hines, which was a test knit.
Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the word “Hine” is a Maori word for girl/daughter, and is used as a term of address for a girl or young woman.

The gorgeous green yarn is a 10ply/worsted superwash from Hannah at Red Riding Hood Yarns, an amazing Kiwi dyer.
It is the perfect girly green, and is called “Snow Covered Tress”.

This little fellow below was for my nephew when he was born, and is a newborn sized “Puerperium” cardigan, again a pattern designed by Kelly, and again in yarn from Red Riding Hood Yarns.
“Puerperium” is the time immediately following the birth of a baby, so it was the perfect pattern for a newborn gift.
The 2 yarns used were RRHY 8ply superwash in “Wide Open Spaces” and “Landslide” (and yes, the theme for these colourways was The Dixie Chicks xx)

I really enjoy knitting both of these patterns, and I am very much in love with the gorgeous colours dyed by Red Riding Hood Yarns. You really should check out the amazing talents of these 2 lovely ladies xx
