Logans new shortalls are finished

I LOVE these new shortalls, the pattern is Florence by Debbie Bliss and I made a few modifications to accommodate Logans cloth nappy. I added 6 short rows and 1.5 cm to front and back to give a higher rise. I also added a little to the bib height so they fit longer as Logan is almost 8 months and the pattern was for 6-9 months. I think they look fantastic and they match Logans striped cadigan, socks and beanie as well. They are made in Baby cashmerino

Some finished projects to show you.

Some finished items to show you all 1st we have the cream sheepypants longies for Logan- These are my 3rd pair and I love how easy the pattern is.

This is size Medium and is made from 85%merino and 15%angora so I am interested in how this works for waterproofing? They feel gorgeous and soft. I am thinking of dying them another colour though for crawling boy that Logan will be soon. I have an enclosed elastic waist and a rolled edge hemline

I got creative today

I on a spur of the moment whim decided to attempt to make a home made cloth fitted reusable nappy. I made my first attempt with 2 very worn out old cloth terry flats and voila here it is being modelled by Logan

Lost in Ravelry-Sorry

HI all,

Sorry I got lost in ravelry for a while there!!!

I have been knitting though and received some gorgeous yummy yarn from England as well.

My latest project is called Florence from Debbie Bliss cashmerino collection. I love these and I am making it in the same colour as Logan's striped cardigan, hat and socks so they will make a nice outfit together.

I have also been making sheepypants 70% complete and a cardigan for Bella for summer finished apart from seaming and picking up the neck and button bands as well as a hoodie for Logan which is finished and just needs seaming
