What do you do with a couple of sweaters that you've been hanging onto for a couple of years because the cable is really cute so you can't stand to throw them out??
I save them until inspiration hits (or I run out of room). This time inspiration hit first.
The little Mr. was growing out of his vest.
He looked very, very cute in his vest.
I cut away the general shape of the old vest.
Then cut off the neck and sleeve ribbing.
(That weird thing sticking out from under the table is Brinkley's forearm, he likes to lay under the table while we work)
I sewed everything back together, reusing the ribbing around the neck and armholes of the new vest.
I gave it a little v-neck. I should have made the V a bit deeper but this will last for awhile.
The knit stretches a bit more than I expected but they're good for a couple of wears before Jess has to wash them again to get them back in shape.
I gotta say, I think he looks incredibly handsome in them.
I am his gramma though, so maybe I am biased.
He loves to go outside and say hello to the yard. I took these pictures last Sunday.
See the flowers?
Yes, it's still that warm here.
Gramps sat him on the garden wall and he had to get down by himself.
It made him a wee bit angry.
Except for his diaper and socks, I made everything he is wearing in this picture.
It makes me happy.
Or is it just looking at him that makes me happy?
Hmm. Tell me what you think.
