Here's Evan wearing his Grandma made outfit.
I'm really pleased with how it looks but Rhonnie says that it won't fit for much longer. He is the same size as a friends little boy who is 6 weeks older. I'm hoping the overalls will last til the end of winter!
The pattern for the overall is from this book....
..I've made quite a few articles from this book and have been really pleased with the end results. So many more projects to come.
And the hat (sorry the photos not so good) is from this book....
It was patterns from this book that inspired and encouraged me to have a go at knitting on circular needles. All the hats are so cute and I have made quite a few of them and now feel quite confident knitting in the round, with either circular needles or double pointed needles.
And here's a shot of Evan wearing his farm pants when he visited last week.
They are the quick change pants from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings.
They are made from a pillow case and a men's shirt that I picked up from an Op shop . The pillow case was green check with farm scenes. Here you can see a dog chasing some sheep. I love making these pants!
The vest he's wearing is from here. One of the joys of being a grandma is sewing and knitting for the wee babes.
