FO: My Boy in a Sweet Romper

When Max was born I knew there were a few things I wanted to knit for him. One was the Pocket Playsuit by C. Pettersen who is behind Ministrikk. It’s such a sweet pattern.

I used some DROPS Baby Merino that I had left in my stash, luckily I had enough to finish the little suit. Because I wanted to knit up stripes I had to improvise a little bit for the pockets and for top just before getting to the straps.

But I think it adds to the finished piece. I doubled the straps as I wanted to make sure that they would hold and be strong.

Since Max was only four months old when I was knitting this, it took me a little longer than it usually would, but I am very pleased with the end result.

And doesn’t Max look gorgeous in it?

Luke: started school this week and he loves it!

In Germany, on their first day of school children receive a cardboard cone (Schultuete), prettily decorated and filled with toys, sweets, school supplies. It is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little bit sweeter.

Max: always in motion. (Canon EOS 550D, f/3.5, 1/320 sec, ISO-1600).

I wanted to share this sweet picture of my two boys. Surprisingly Max is loving having time with Mama for most of the day and he has fallen into a rhythm with his nap again, giving me the chance to catch-up on blogging, emails, work, knitting, etc.
