Green with Envy – Blogtoberfest: Day Six

Here’s a little outfit that I blogged about in early February,  it was for my best friends little boy, who has featured on this blog already. It’s from a Burda Style pattern that I’ve sewed a couple of times, which is really easy to make. My friend, who’s staying with us for the next five days with her gorgeous little boy, Tom, was kind enough to send me some pictures of Tom wearing them.

And doesn’t he just look adorable in them? I’m really pleased with the colour and how the pockets make the forest green look even greener (can I say that?). Here’s another picture of the little man with his Grandma, Zita.

Did you also notice his little socks? They’re made by me as well.

It’s just a straightforward baby sock pattern and one that I’m going to be knitting again soon as I need to make some socks for Luke for the winter that is fast approaching and a couple for Christmas for some kids as well.

Children’s Book Week 2011 – Blogtoberfest: Day Four

Did you know that it’s Children’s Book Week in the UK this week? It’s interesting to me that this has come around at this particular moment, as I’ve just recently received a list of the books I had a child from my twin brother (he had children first so got all of the books we had when we were children). And these are the books that I’m hoping to get for Luke. Now those of you who know me will know that these are all going to be in German. It’s about time too as up to now we’ve only had English books and while I talk to Luke all day long in German, I still have to read him the books in English and it just doesn’t feel right.

These are my favourite three:

Drei Bären (yes that is indeed Goldilocks)

Hänschen im Blaubeerenwald

Pelle’s Neue Kleider

I’ve now put together wishlists on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de, mainly as a reminder for myself and also to share with my family in case they want to buy Luke a present.
