New House: Main Bedroom

Here’s another look into our new house. This is the main bedroom…which I love! I think it’s the biggest room in the house and I know it’s the biggest bedroom I’ve ever had. It would actually fit our bed twice over I think.

I also like the dark red walls, it gives the room a very warm feeling. And I think our bed matches the walls nicely.

The other thing I love about this room are the built-in wardrobes…such an amazing storage solution. The fact that out of the four doors two of them have mirrors is also equally amazing.

And our shelves fit nicely on the one wall and I think it looks rather good too.

Only one issue with the shelves being there, Luke’s now getting into them all the time and emptying them. However, I seem to have solved that problem by just putting things on the shelves that he can reach that he can actually play with.

FO: Birthday Vest

I was able to complete a birthday vest for one of Luke’s little friends: Kiran. And I managed to finish it just before his first birthday on 27th March.  I made the same vest I knitted for my nephew last year.

It’s a lovely pattern that is knitted in the round on 40cm circular needles. As I was knitting it it felt like it was really loose, and that even though I was making the two year size, exactly the same I did as last time. I’m not a big fan of knitting with circular needles that are any smaller than 60cm, it just doesn’t feel good on my hands when I’m actually knitting. And I often feel like I’m getting blisters on my little fingers…which is definitely not good.

I love the effect of the different stitch and I think the stockinette stitch makes the moss stitch look quite fancy. I changed it up a little bit and instead of knitting a rib on the arms I just knitted four rows of garter stitches, I do think it just looks a little better.

I was able to use some buttons from my stash, they are actually from my mom, and I think they finish off the little vest perfectly.

And here’s Kiran, just after waking up from a nap, in the vest. Doesn’t he look adorable?
