Poro Poro Poro hat and scarf

I was asked by my mum if I could make a hat and scarf set for her friends 2 year old just before Christmas. I wasn't too sure about making a hat as I'm not very confident in shaping on the Passap but I decided to try it anyway... I decided to use my poro poro poro pattern as it's a cute, fun pattern (also my mum had pointed out that kids would like it) Anyway after a few attempts I finished it and sent it off yesterday and here it is:

I'm not very aware of what kids like or dislike so have decided to do some research of baby and kids clothes and products I could knit and sell. I have listed this hat and scarf set on my etsy shop and have made a smaller one for my nephew who is almost 4 months old. I'm working on a baby/children collection inspired by animals so watch this space for updates....

More of my new collection...

These are 2 new additions to my urban/nature collection. Everything is named in Dutch as thats where the inspiration I got for these items came from. The cushion is called 'Blad' leaf in Dutch and the scarf is called 'Stads' which is urban in Dutch. There are still more items to come.
You can buy these items from my etsy shop

Happy new collection!

Happy new year to all! I am back from a wonderful Christmas in Scotland with my family and a lovely new year here in the Netherlands. Now it's back to work. I'm hoping 2010 will bring more success for my mini business so have a new collection already half way completed. It's inspired by urban nature and consists of scarves, cushions, arm warmers and hats! I am also going to start a baby range of blankets, hats etc. so look out for that in the coming months!

First off here are some photos of a couple of my new collection scarves
