Ghalya Doll pattern release

It has been ages since I have released a pattern.  This one is dear to my heart and has been in the making since February.  The doll itself is a simple one.  If you can crochet, increase and decrease in the round you can definitely make one.  I can make one in an afternoon.  The hair is a little bit time consuming but so worth it.  And the clothes are fun to make and customize.

Please welcome the Ghalya doll.

Ghalya Doll

 The pattern includes a crochet and a knit dress pattern, a photo tutorial for the hair and some accessory suggestions.  She stands at 22 cm (8.6inches) tall, the perfect height for a little girl’s doll.


The pattern is available on ravelry


Winter 2012 sale and running out of yarn

I am having a buy 2 get 1 free pattern sale.

coupon code WINTER2012 , valid until the 30th of November

Just click this link to check out my patterns, some of them are free too.

Meanwhile, I am just knitting a simple cardigan for my little one


I am running really low on yarn and I am hoping to finish the second sleeve and knit a collar without running out.  I always hate having to buy an extra ball of yarn and only using very little of it, because then I never know what to do with a partial skein.


I also finally finished the socks I started in September and gifted them to my mom.

I also made another headband. I love knitting those, they are quick, addictive and very practical if you have a little girl with crazy hair.

I have also been on a graphic novel kick recently.

Oh and the Hexacket Hat Pattern has been released.
It is available at Ravelry and Craftsy

Ribby Tote {Pattern Release}

It is always exhilarating when I release a new pattern. I always feel like saying “My job here is done” out loud. Weeks of work (designing, knitting, pattern writing and testing) are complete and it is ready.

This tote is knit in one piece top down, with no seaming. It is a fun knit without being too complex or boring and at the end you get a pretty tote that you can use as a market bag or as an every day bag. You can use leather handles or rings or whatever floats your boat.


You can find it on Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry.

The November Hat in December

I loved knitting this hat. It was fun and turned out really cute and chic. It is a quick knit that uses around 70 yards of DK weight yarn.

Another November Hat

It fits children aged 3 and up and since it is very stretchy it can also fit an adult but if you would like a larger hat you could use Worsted weight yarn and go up a needle size.

It is available now on ravelry.
