Our due date is fast approaching, it’s this coming Wednesday: 9th February. But there’s no sign of baby yet…I’ve been walking loads the last few days, and I’m sure that it’s helping, but who knows! In the meantime, I’m keeping myself busy with some knitting (what else is a girl to do?) I finished these Summer overalls over the weekend and am really pleased with them.
It’s from a pattern over at Garnstudio and was a real pleasure to knit. I’m also pleased with the fact that I was able to use some of my leftover Safran yarn, which I’d been using for bonnets, socks and blankets. That’s why there are a few different colours in these overalls, but I do actually think it worked out really well.
I made the overalls in a 3-6 months size so that baby Prasad can be wearing it during the Summer, now we just have to hope for a hot Summer. The pattern is so easy to knit because it’s really straight forward, apart from the moss stitch at the edges of the legs, arms and the collar it’s basically just straight forward stockinette stitch.
The opening in the legs works well and I had some nice buttons that I was able to use here.
I think overall the colours work very well together and I especially like the contrast with the pinks in the sleeves and legs, it just gives the overalls that extra ‘je ne se quas’!
