I have been very into outfitting Lucy and Lincoln lately, I can’t seem to stop searching Ravelry and Pinterest for ideas of clothes and things to make for them. I think it’s something about the cooler fall weather and wanting them to be cozy and happy, all snug in our little house. They just get so excited when they see that I’m making something just for them, it’s a lot of fun! One of the funny things about making things for a living is that you rarely, rarely get to make your own special people anything. Total catch-22. I’m trying very hard to make sure that Lucy and Lincoln get their share of mama-mades this year.
I finished this little tunic top for Lucy the other day, I was super happy with the pattern and it looks so cute on her! She was so busy playing in it the day after I made it that I forgot to take any photos of her wearing it. It was very easy, I’m itching to make her one in fine wale corduroy with flannel lining. I love that you can make it out of quilting cotton if you want, but it’s 3/4 sleeved and lined. Great for fall layering.
Lucy picked out the buttons from my stash, they are from Wooly Moss Roots.
Other things in the works…a woodland quilt for Lincoln which is going to take forever, and a few handknits. I’ve maybe been spending a little too much time at the yarn store lately, no more yarn store until I get a couple of things finished!
This yarn is for Lucy:
They’re both the same but the one ball looks bigger because the lady at the yarn store lets Lucy wind my skeins and she was winding that one with her non-dominant hand as an experiment. Makes me smile when I look at them! I’m intending these for this, or this. I can’t quite decide.
This yarn is for Lincoln:
I’m planning on making him this sweater. A few months ago I took him to the fabric store out of necessity (because really, taking a 2 year old to the fabric store is not that fun), he saw those fire truck buttons and wouldn’t put them down! I’m not even sure if he knew they were buttons or thought they were something else. I figured I’d use them for something for him eventually! I took them along to the yarn store with me to try and find yarn to go with them. I’m just hoping he doesn’t try to pull them off his sweater when it’s finished.
How about you? What have you been making lately?
