Milo Mania at Little Brown Owl!!!! 29th-31st May ♥

Oh my goodness!!  Have I not blogged about Milo Mania yet??!!! How silly of me!  
Okay, so here it is - Milo Mania!!  
Do you know a baby or small child who would be cold this winter without a gorgeous, unique handknit tikki-designed Milo vest?  

Well, hurry up and head over to Little Brown Owl on Facebook so you can nab yourself a very special creation from one of many WAHM knitters and Milo-licensees who have joined in the fun!!

It's all starting tonight - 29th May 2013 at 8.30pm AEST and closes on Friday 31st May at 9.30pm AEST.  There are big Milos, small Milos, dolly Milos, boyish Milos and girly Milos!!  There are also a number of custom spots up for grabs if you can't find just the right size for your little one.

Due to the nature of the fit of the Milo vests, be sure to measure your child before the market opens and go by chest size rather than age when buying the right size.  Babies tend to be okay within the age guide, however as children grow, they tend to be very different shapes and sizes and more likely to be outside the age guide for sizing. For example, my petite 7yo wears a size 3 Milo vest!

See you there!!! Have fun :D

Well, thank YOU all so much for your fantastic entries to the Little Brown Owl 3rd Birthday Giveaway this week!!  For those who didn't see the announcement on our Facebook page, the winner was Shanon Engel and her new baby due to arrive this winter!  Congratulations again, Shanon - I'm really looking forward to creating something lovely for your baby to wear. 

'Little Brown Owl' hand-dyed wool from Tangle & Stash.

Shanon has chosen to have the gorgeous hand-dyed 'Little Brown Owl' coloured wool from Tangle & Stash knitted by me into a cardigan for her new baby. Not just any cardigan, the In A Pear Tree, the cardigan designed by the one and only Cathy Rubin from The Barbarian Horde!

It is a specially-designed cardigan to suit those first few months of baby's life when they grow soooo much, and so fast, with cute design features to give it an individual style.

I'm really looking forward to getting started on the project, and I'll be keeping you all updated with the progress.  It will take me longer than it usually would as I'll be fitting it in between other orders ;)  hehe  Stay tuned for some pictures next week to see how it's coming along!!
