this weekend, i completed this scrappy bloom dress for another waldorf mama friend of mine. she wanted it in pinks, purples and blues - all malabrigo worsted. she seemed pleased with the result. :) this continues to truly (and obviously) be one of my favorite styled knitting patterns for little girls (with a few modifications, per my ravelry notes here)...
today, i bring you a giveaway from waldorfmama sponsor...mosey handmade! this delightful etsy shop is filled with many beautiful waldorf-inspired toys and unique recycled/upcycled/reconstructed sweater lovlies...
mosey handmade is now a duo! jes from mosey will be joined by her new partner in craft, stephanie, from songs of flight. long lost friends, the two reunited last spring and have been scheming ever since. they went from cutting each others hair in high school to turning out one of a kind creations one by one! mosey handmade has a great fondness of vintage fabrics from childhood, corduroys, calicos and tiny prints, hand dyed felt. mosey loves working with recycled materials, dyeing them, cutting them up and fashioning them into new lovelies. we aim to keep everything earth-friendly by upcycling and gleaning all the materials we can, as well as using eco friendly packaging and natural dyes.
with a love of nature, the wood and the sea...we craft everything from our own hands and often collaborate and work the same piece over and over until it is just right! chock full of waldorf-inspired children's toys and items to keep your little ones warm, we hope to bring you something special to cozy you or keep you and yours company. find more about the daily goings on of mosey handmade at: www.bitsandbobbin.blogspot.com.

maya had a slight low-grade fever and a bit of congestion the last couple of days, so as usual when she has a no-school home day...she created non-stop. from knitting, to finger-knitting, to drawing with her beloved beeswax crayons (55 little art cards at last count). she's quite the artistic one...
i, too, created right along side her. it is such a joy to make things side by side here in this space of ours, each of us setting about our own work with great love and care. and as i watch her, in her creative process, i am always inspired. and filled with gratitude that we get to share these kinds of moments, as we so often do.
i was knitting, of course. and i finished one more felted water bottle carrier for the shop!
thank you for the color suggestions for more water bottle carriers in response to my last post. i'll definitely incorporate some of your suggested colorways in my upcoming creations. :)
