The knitted gifts keep rolling in.
This is from Val:
Isn't it the cutest? She made it from sock yarn scraps. It's very "indy". Mr. Happy and I have been jokingly calling it his "Ernie on LSD" sweater. It's just so funky. I just hope he's not allergic to cats like his mom. (see them on the buttons?)
Now, when the Mogrunt is in a more classic, serene mood, he can wear this little number by Julie:
This is made with 4-ply cotton and will be perfect for cool summer evenings. I think it looks quite nice hanging on the door of the nursery, but I'm sure it will look better on the boy.
When we head to the beach, he'll be wearing this outfit:
Made by: Lisa
Pattern: shorts from denim pants in LMKG; top was her own design.
Yarn: Rowan denim
All I can think of when I look at this photo is the ad in the back of the comic books where the bully is kicking sand at the skinny guy. Charles Atlas, I hope my son doesn't need your help.
This sweater, well, this sweater was knit by his mama:
And this I imagine him wearing with a pair of jeans - hee hee - and Birkenstocks. I used leftover Zara from my stash AND from the Ninja's stash.
He won't, however, be wearing this sock:
...as I gave it away with its mate and another pair to the temp who is working at our office* as the receptionist. She is due in July.
No worries, though - I still have the rest of that ball of Trekking, so I'm sure I can get a pair or two out of it, plus a hat, plus another hat...
And in other news, it seems I have developed some great skills:
(note to self: never wear that shirt in public again - it makes me look like a beach ball.)
*Rather... the office from which I am now officially on leave.
