It sprinkled a tiny bit this morning, and H was quick to grab his red boots and otter umbrella. So cute!
He's proudly wearing a shirt that he "helped Mommy make." He sat on my lap and pushed the scissor button when I finished a seam. I cut this down from an old shirt of mine that I wasn't wearing much. Cuter on him anyway :)
He's very interested in the sewing machine and the knitting machine, and I'm excited to help him learn both when he gets a little older. This is a good start!
After knitting a toddler sweater for H, I decided to make one for me. I used his sweater as a guide for gauge, and made adjustments as I went along.
Overall it's not too bad! One of my main goals was to have sleeves that aren't too short, and I definitely got those. I crocheted the edges at the wrist and neckline, and machine knit the ribbing at the lower edge.
I like how my little guy photobombs me as he's having a snack: "whatcha doing, Mom??"
It's so warm, and not too itchy if I have a shirt under it. And there's his sweater, which is a little too big, next to mine. He calls his an "owie sweater" and won't wear it. I'll make one with softer yarn next time :)
I am a lefty, and I like to try a little bit of everything in the crafting world. I have a wonderful husband, toddler boy H, and four cats: Casper, Herbert, Mouse, and Dragon. I love crocheting, and I've been sewing since I could reach the pedal. I like to explore all kinds of crafts, and recently I started machine knitting.
