Good morning lovelies, hope you’re all well and enjoying this fine Tuesday!
Was rummaging through my craft room the other day, as I’ve had a number of you ask what I have left in stock – and the answer is not very much right now, as lately I’ve been knitting more to order than building up my stock supplies, but here was one little pair of wristlets I thought I would post now, then I’ll dig the rest out and post them up sometime this week.
These pretty little Engel wristlets are made in pure organic cotton and perfectly match the Timeout cardigan from Odd Molly! Still haven’t worn mine yet, as it feels too cold, so fingers crossed I get a chance real soon!
This pair are available for shipping now at a special price of £28.00, excl of P&P, so if you want to grab yourself a bargain, please contact me at the usual email address of email@example.com as once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Many Thanks for dropping by, have a fab day!

Well I have to admit I do rather like that Santana number, but no, that’s not what this posting is about!
No, this is about a pretty girl called Maria and her lovely dark grey Vive Maria legwarmers, named in honour of both her and myself (even if I am Marie, I actually prefer to be called Maria!)
Anyhow, I digress – here is the story of a beautiful girl, a sunny day in Sweden and a photographic story of just how pretty she looks in them……
And doesn’t she just as they match her Odd Molly outfit so perfectly!
This sweetheart has the most amazing legs, so I had to make hers longer than I do for most customers – lucky girl!
Wish mine looked so good on me! Lovely close up detail……
I found some letter charms recently, so I used one for Maria’s – well let’s face it, if I’m going to buy letters, they’re always likely to be either a C, S or M, as most of my friends names start with these!
Looks like she had lots of fun in her super sweet outfit, hope she didn’t get too cold sitting there, but what a lovely shot!
Here are mine and Maria’s together and as you can see, they’re much longer than my pair, and mine are a little longer than the average pair I knit for customers!
And they are knitted in a wonderfully soft pure merino yarn, so no scratchy lambs wool/acrylic mix in mine!
Stunning or what?…….
Many thanks to this beautiful Swedish girl for modelling them for me, Maria, you never let me down!
Vive Maria’s rock, that’s for sure!
Many Thanks for dropping by - have a wonderful Monday!
Stor klem til deg!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday, as the sun is shining here so I’m feeling very spring-like today!
Just thought I’d post some photo’s of my pretty vibrant red legwarmers, which I made very recently and wore for the first time on Valentines Day – well with a big red heart on the back of my Kahlo dress, it seemed rather appropriate to me!
And here they are, a beautiful scarlet colour, finished off with a navy blue crocheted bow…...
Here I’ve matched the outfit with a pair of my Vive Maria grey wristlets, which are finished off with a cute little camel coloured bow.
And here they are….
I don’t press out these wristwarmers as much as I did the Engels, as the pattern looks too flat when I do, so they may look small, but trust me, they’re not!
Sweet and flirty indeed…..
I have another red pair of Vive Maria legwarmers available in red, which are for sale at £70.00, excl of P&P, so if you’re interested, please contact me here at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Vive Maria wristwarmers can also be made in any colour, and I will have some more available which will be posted on the blog in the next few days.
Wishing you all a sunny Sunday, wherever you may be – thanks for dropping by!

Can’t believe just how long it’s taken me to get back in here, as I’ve been mad busy with orders etc. but I just wanted to show you a design that I’ve been working on and I hope that you like it!
And here it is, my Spring version of ‘Vive Maria’ Legwarmers! Cute don’t you think?!
The Spring version is made from a merino/cotton mix, so much cooler for the warmer months, plus the wool gives them some natural elasticity! I’ve also made them much lacier, which looks so pretty!
As you can see, there are some other different details, as I’ve kept the lacing up the back, but have removed the ties, so they don’t hang down and come undone. I’ve also added tiny contrasting bows at the back of the heel also, as I’m wearing mine with ankle boots, so I thought I may as well pretty them up!
They are also finished off with a cute little silver charm on the right leg, but these are random, so you never know what you may end up with – which is half the fun I think!
This pair are 60cm long and 48cm wide right now, as they haven’t been elasticated yet. Some ladies like this feature, others don’t, so if you’re interested, please let me know what you prefer.
And the good news is that these little mammas are ready to find a good home elsewhere, as they are for sale at the usual price of £70.00, excl of P&P
If you’re interested, please drop me a line at the contact email address here……
Watch this space for the red version of the A/W Vive Maria’s that I wore on Valentines Day!
By the way, as you can see, I've been playing around with framing my photo's but if anyone can offer me some advice as to which software is better, I would be really grateful!
Wishing you all a wonderful evening and many thanks for dropping by!
