Yes it´s Monday again and I can´t believe that another week has flown by with out me noticing it. I remember when O was a baby I waited and waited for the first 6 months to go by so he could start eating food but now 5 months are almost gone since M was born and I´m just thinking “Slow Down” He is just growing to fast.
This week was spent on a surprise project. My friend in Iceland had her baby a little early so I decided to throw together a little something for her little boy. What do you guys think. It’s a size 6-12 months so that it can be used a little longer. I almost want to keep it for my own son but I can make another for him. It’s made with pure merino wool from berocco that I had in my stash. I didn’t have enough of the chocolate so I added some baby blue. It’s the baby sophisticate by Linden Heflin and a super quick and easy knit.
I knit a few rows of the Tea Leaf Cardigan but with the baby sweater needing to be knit ASAP I didn’t do much.
I also had my class that I was teaching on making the Koala Baby from itty bitty toys by Susan B Anderson so I had to make another Baby Koala and it will be living at my local yarn store. The class went well. I would have wanted more time. For something like this you need a little more time than just an hour and a half. I think I was able to teach them to close the squishies and one of the ladies was learning how to knit front and back of a stitch for the increase. I also showed them how to graft the head on and the arm and all that fun stuff. Hopefully the next class will have more people in it though. Maybe I will teach the baby doll or the giraffe.
Baby doll was on hold since the little girl’s birthday is over a month away.
Anyway, My garden has been going crazy lately and it’s getting hard to walk around my beds to look for produce. So here are the pics.
