Back to Business

Hello all! I've been busy and distracted, and I apologize for letting you all sit idle for so so long. Here's a quick post to get things going again.

On August 8th my brother got married- Hoorah, Mr. and Mrs. Brother!

(left to right: My mom, Mr. Brother, Mrs. Brother, Me, Elliott, Senor, and my dad)

Senor and I were both in the wedding party, and Elliott got to be there for part of the festivities as well. So of course, as any good knitting mom would do, I decided that he would have to have a new outfit and I would have to make it for him. I knit furiously for two weeks to get it done in time, and I was sewing in ends and waistbands the morning of the wedding. Here it is:

Cargo by Brynne Sutton
sans pockets (dressier that way)
Tahki Cotton Classic in a beige colorway (don't have the number handy)
I used a headband for the waistband. Just double up and stitch part of it and sew it in place. It worked really well, and I suppose there's a possibility of letting it back out if it could be extracted from the hem... of course that is limited by the stretchiness of the stockinette.


Owl Baby Vest by Jodi Haraldson
sans eyeball buttons (dressier that way)
Cascade Venezia in black

I realize that you can't even tell the owl cables are on that black vest, so here's another photo where you can see them better:

So there you go. I've finally gotten the baby boy knitting mojo. I am currently working on a nice lettuce green Waffles for the boy. Lettuce green because it could also be worn by future brother or sister... whenever they might come along. Don't get any ideas. Please. Let's get this one a little farther along first...

I love that owl vest, I almost started making one last week but I am currently banished from knitting.
Great hair too!

The first pic that I've seen of the wedding. Do you guys have some on the computer. I may be spending all of next Wed at the office.

Of course, Elliott looks sooo cute. Love that boy.
