Happy Friday everyone!
You may remember that I was knitting a little jumpsuit for my yet-unborn Bean back in December. I was feeling a little guilty that all I had made him was a hat. When Bean took his sweet time arriving I convinced myself that he was refusing to come until his outfit was finished. Since he came over a week after it was done, I guess I was a little off base on that. And of course, when he did come, the jumpsuit was massive on him. What a difference six weeks can make...

Pattern: b20-23 - Jumpsuit with raglan sleeves by Drops Design
Despite its less than inspiring name, this is a great little free pattern. It is knit bottom up and is virtually seamless. The original pattern has a hood but I was a little short on yarn and don't actually find hoods very practical for little babies. I don't like letting them fall asleep in garments with hoods and changing them for every nap is out of the question! I improvised the ribbed neck.
I love this yarn! It was lovely to knit and it is very soft. The very best part was I got it 50%off ; )
Since winter has returned with a vengeance around these parts, I think Bean will have ample opportunity to wear this little suit in the next little while. (that's me looking for the silver lining in the twenty centimetres of snow outside my door)
We've got a big weekend planned as my Monkey is turning five on Sunday! We are having a Pirate/Mini Golf party. I am super stressed about making the cake! Hopefully it will be nice enough to show pictures to you next week... but if I don't, let's never speak of it again, OK?
Have a fantastic FO Friday and a fabulous weekend!
