After learning as a child, then producing nothing creative since, I took up knitting again when I had my first son 3½ years ago. I was tempted by the cute books and beautiful yarns every time I walked through the haberdashery aisle at my (then) local John Lewis store.
So I bought this Debbie Bliss book 'baby style' and haven't looked back. The lower jacket is made of Rowan's Handknit cotton and was the first thing I started. The upper jacket is made from Rowan's All Seasons Cotton and is the first thing I finished. I don't think you can see in the pictures, but I didn't know how to seam, so they are both finished terribly. But I love them nonetheless.
I have since made the toggled jacket for a nephew and the seed stitch jacket for nephews, a niece and friend's babies too.
Teddy doesn't like looking at the camera, so this is a rare one.
He's SO into Cars the Movie, see Chick and the King on his shirt. Thinking about it, we haven't seen that movie in a couple of days now! But we did buy CTM valentines cards today for school. Gotta get them all before they're sold out.
And here's VIP WIP no.2, in action at the playpark
Matthew's wearing that shirt for the first time, it has a squeaker in its nose - very cute, courtesy of the wonderful and lovely Great Mo.
