Owly hoooo!

Finally finished Bodie's owl vest a few days ago but I've been ignoring it, feeling cranky with it since then...

Excuse the crappy pics, I couldn't get good ones no matter what I tried today... I should have waited for better light but oh well.
It still needs blocking so looks a bit messy, but I still wanted to show it off. :)

I love this pattern. It's really quick to knit up, and really enjoyable. That is unless you decide to modify that sizing from 9-12 month size to 24 month size, and end up pulling out and redoing half of it 4 times.

And now of course Bodie has decided he hates it. I have no idea what it is, but he HATES it. He screams hysterically the few times I've tried to put it on him so I've given up on it for now.

And on the needles now... a sneak peek...
I LOVE the way this wool dyed up. ♥

Night naps for Bodie

I made these for Bodie last night... he was desperately needing night nappies after his old ones had been worn so much they were worn down to the nap on the inner. :)

Bodie loves the knit outer, "STARS!" and it was a bargain $2/metre at Spotlight.
Inner microfleece, with bamboo boosters.
Medium DDU pattern.

I just love when ruffles turn out beautifully. :)

I should have made a newbie sized one at the same time, and take pics of them all together. Will do that today. :)

Some velour I dyed

Has been stolen!!!

I dyed this velour up for nappies and mama pads and Bodie has decided it's his snuggly now. He takes it everywhere, and snuggles up with it to go to sleep. I guess it belongs to him now, lol.

Bodie's playmat

You know you're on to a good thing when they are playing with it before it's even started, haha

And a bad photo of the progress so far...

Today I learnt 2 things.

1. Don't put things in your mouth when you're working with superglue.
2. Superglue tastes bad.

Here's what I have to show for a whole lot of mess...

More to come soon, I'm working on something for Bodie...

And here is my sweetness himself. Taken this morning when he was still all snuggly and warm fresh from bed. He insisted on wearing his barely finished new longies and then ran off with them, stroking them and telling me they're soft. Best compliment I could get. ♥

As soon as I finish the I-cord, I'm going to dip dye the longies in deepening shades of blue. Or maybe green... haven't decided yet. :)

Bodie's Green Giraffes Night Nappy

He loved the newborn one I made the other day, so I told him I'd make him one. It's the DDU in medium, with 9 layers of bamboo. Might not sound like a lot of absorbency, especially for a night nappy, but he's a light wetter.

He was most impressed with it. He ran off to show his Dad straight away and then kept patting it. :)

And tonight he saw me laying out the nappies for pics and ripped his nappy off, threw it on the floor with determination and demanded his new giraffe nappy. haha! Then he tried to put it on himself when I told him it wasn't bed time yet. Funny duffer.

Excuse my extremely neat bookshelf in the background.

I forgot to post...

... pics of these other 2 minky AI2s I did a while ago too, so I took pics tonight while I had the camera out.
Here they are with the black damask I did first.

And all the newbie naps I've made so far.
