All knitted and ready for finishing - my latest slouchy beanie

Tagged in this photo

Its almost the weekend and I'm getting ready for some serious knitting time!
Tying in the loose end before adding a couple of buttons. The buttons keep the headband closed but also add a decorative feature to this item.

Maxies Knitwear is where you can find beautiful women's knitwear accessories handknitted by me, Julie.

Maxies Knitwear started as an outlet for my knitting passion. I learnt to knit from my mother, who knitted beautiful jumpers and cardigans for us and for those she loved. She also taught me (and my 2 brothers) how to knit when we were little.

My knitting style is quite simple and I love to try different textures to create an item. Although I have knitted for many years my experience in different techniques is limited. Thanks to online tutorials, over the past few months I've had the time to learn new skills such as arm knitting and circular knitting. Still, my favourite items to knit are scarves and there's nothing quite like a soft, warm hand knit scarf to wear on a cold winter's day!

Usually when knitting an item, my mind is already planning the next piece to knit. So every now and then I need to have a 'completion day', where the majority of the day is finishing off all those pieces that have been put aside while I move onto my next creation. These are the days where bows or flowers are created, or when my large pile of buttons is scattered across the floor while I hunt down the exact button for each piece. For me it's such a fun day, with a sense of satisfaction to see the items completed and ready to be photographed.

Building my Etsy shop has taught me many skills over the years, but I know there is still a lot for me to learn! It's been such a delight for me to have my lovingly knitted items sent to other parts of the world to be worn.
