It is very warm and thick and turned out a little snug, meaning he might not wear it much because it will probably be to small by next fall. Ah well, I guess I will be making yet another one! This is the 2nd one I have made, but I lost the first one! It is NOWHERE to be found and I am sad indeed.
And it goes amazingly well with the Quick Change Trousers from Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings book (which is my OTHER favorite pattern for boys.) I am starting to feel like I am majorly copying Soulemama because she makes the same pants, and same vests all the time! They are just so cute though, and every baby should have several of each for sure.
Too bad I am not perfect at photographing a very active toddler. Notice he is sitting next to the ashes, his favorite sensory medium! The Quick Change Trousers are easy and quick, and this pair I made him last year. I also have 2 more pairs cut out, 1 sewn, and fabric on the way for more. I might be a little obsessed...
But when you find something you like, why change it? :) Anyway, I am hoping to get some sewing done this afternoon and I have yarn on the way for more projects... if only my little ones would cooperate all the time! From the time I started this post, until now, my two littlests found a tub of Christmas balls and threw them all over the porch. And they were the breakable ones I have been saving for when my kids are older. So as you can imagine, I had to spend a good deal of time sweeping tiny shards of glass. Oh well. As a teenager I used to complain about being sooooooo booooooooored. Now I never have that problem. Its almost like revenge on myself for being so obnoxious at one time in my life. Knitting and sewing keeps me sane.
