Home flowers finishes

Today’s post is about finished WIP’s but I thought I would include this rosebud too, as it’s a little WIP in itself. Imagine….a rosebud in my garden in January!


Why I’m really posting is to let you see my finished Lacy Baktus, I have at last found and finished a project using my Quince & Co organic linen Sparrow yarn. I had a few false starts, knitting things I really didn’t like but I eventually found a pattern I liked. The yarn itself is delicious so I wanted to knit something that I really wanted to wear.

Lacy Baktus Collage

You can find my Ravelry notes on it here.


Another little finished project is Esme, my third little Valentine girl. Crocheted in a pale pink alpaca/wool mix yarn and wearing a soft blue mohair cardigan, she’s a delicate little soul!


Esme means ‘loved’, quite appropriate name for a Valentine bunny, don’t you think!


While I’m on the subject of WIP’s, here’s another one…….spring!! This is the sky here this evening at 4.20 pm, its all shaping up nicely!!!

Happy Wednesday my friends! 🙂

It’s about time that you made something for yourself Vivienne! It is beautiful. Little Esme is sure to fly out of the shop when you list her. I don’t think you have ever shown us a pale pink (or even a pink) bunny before? x

Dear Vivienne,

Every time I see a sign of pre-spring I think of you now:-) It was cherry blossom on the trees in one of the central city car parks this weekend, imagine! In January!

I must confess to feeling pretty smiltten with both Esme – in my favourite colours, thank you 🙂 – for she is indeed very delicate indeed! So, so, SO pretty. And as for your Baktus? That colour is just up my street these days. Perhaps you should make on pre-spring sky colour?

Just a thought 😉

Esme is such a cutie

Hi Vivienne, there is nothing better than finishing WIP is there, it’s like ticking off lists. Your knitting looks gorgeous, so soft and a lovely neutral colour which will go with everything. Little Esme also has a soft pretty cardi too, what a lucky bunny. I also loved Teddy in your last post, I was busy with Daisy and Milly and meant to leave a comment…such sweet bunnies. It’s bedtime here….we have just got home from dancing. Happy nearly weekend my dear x

Such a pretty scarf… I’m tempted to make one for myself! Esme is very pretty too!

helen philipps January 16, 2014 - 10:06 am

Your new scarf is just gorgeous, Vivienne! I love the yarn, the colour and the texture and your knitting is so beautiful. Little Esme is such a sweet little bunny, love her colours and you know I love a fluffy cardie! I really like the idea of a rosebud being a WIP!
Wishing you a very happy weekend!

Your Baktus is just too beautiful for words! It is perfect in every way…as is dear Esme, you always choose the perfect colours, patterns and textures for these sweethearts, I don’t know how you do it! Magic! Chrissie xxx

Gill January 16, 2014 - 3:24 pm

Lovely soft grey scarf Vivienne, it will go with anything!
Esme is such a darling too, everything just perfect, and it’s good to see signs of better things to come outside – I too have spotted a few rosebuds, and my summer lobelia is still flowering in my hanging basket!

You’ve knit yourself a beautiful Lacy Baktus, Vivienne. It looks so soft, and very wearable. Will we see you knitting more things for yourself this year? How pretty is Esme?! Her little cardigan is like a cloud :0) She’s beautiful. xxx

Great shawl and bunny and so nice to see those blue skies – after a frosty start, our day is looking like it might be sunny! Hurrah for spring 🙂

What a brave little rosebud. So pretty to see at this time of year.
Your Lacy Baktus is gorgeous in that beautiful yarn.
Little Esme is adorable. As always you have put together the perfect yarn, fabric and trim to create the perfect little bunny.
