One of the joys in our extended family is that we have a new baby in our clan, little baby Lu. He’s simply adorable and funny and sunny and it makes your heart glad when he gives you a dazzling grin.
We celebrated his birthday on Saturday, and there were lovely decorations, and happy family members, and we had cake and he loved it.
There were also some presents – mostly things he needs like shirts and shorts, but also his aunt and uncle went all out and got him a dinosaur car and he’s already smitten.
As the designated knitter, I decided to do a small thing, since summer is coming and he won’t really need much knitwear. I knit him a vest, and put cats on it.
The pattern is called Peanut and it’s from a small booklet by Tin Can Knits called Max and Bodhi’s Wardrobe, with some fun small boy patterns. Peanut has a snowflake on the front and the back, so I substituted the “cat” pattern from the Alterknit Stitch Dictionary which is quite fun. My project notes on Ravelry here.
This is a pre-blocked photo, and somehow I don’t seem to have post-washing photos – it looks a lot better than this!
