WIP Wednesday #9 - Hoot Hoot... Roar!

I don't have that much to show 'in progress' this week... mostly because I have a couple things ready for FO Friday - woo hoo : )

My socks by the pool are still in time out, so I'm moving on.

I've started the front of No Star sweater for Monkey but it's going to be bumped again...

Our family was very excited to hear a couple weeks ago that my husband's newest godchild was safely born - and it's a BOY (the family have two girls already so this made it extra exciting). G will be traveling to New Hampshire for the christening at the end of April so I have a little less than 6 weeks to turn this:
The colour is much more of a forest green in real life

Into a very cute Owl Baby Vest.
I'm casting on today!

In the meantime, we had a very special 3 year old birthday party this weekend. Monkey was very excited to have a Tyrannosaurus Rex cake (as specifically requested). 

In keeping with the theme, my Monkey wore his dinosaur sweater knit by his Great Aunt Sandra. Isn't it (and he) adorable?

He is at a hopeless stage for taking photos.
If you tell his to open his eyes for the picture, he opens his mouth.
Don't forget to check out more WIP's on Tami's blog

Cheers, Nikki
