Silk Regency Reticule

I've been making some more silk Regency style reticules today, and was particularly happy with this one.

Its in a heavyweight pure silk yarn, with a picot edge and striped in colours that reflect the fondness for pineapples at this period. I'm planning on doing some properly spiky pineapple reticules soon, but for the moment, this gives a good look and is a nice cheerful little bag. the colours have come out a bit washed out in the picture, they are a better mix in real life.

Flower Fairy Hat

I posted last week about the Belladonna Mitts that are newly out at Knitpicks, I also have taken the opportunity to completely rewrite the Flower Fairy Hat. This version is sized for both adult and child wearers, and has new charts and layouts to make everything nice and clear and easy to follow.
Find this cap pattern at Knitpicks for $1.99

Its a fun little cap, pretty and lacy, but easy to knit and it really flattering on a wide range of ages and face shapes.
