Retro baby

According to DH, this outfit makes Maddy look very retro. I finally got around to finishing those pants, that despite being quick and easy, sat at my sewing desk unfinished for a couple of weeks. I hate doing ruffles but love the finished look.

They are a little long at the moment as I added length so they would last my little sunflower more than a week or two. She just keeps zooming up and is already 86cm tall - the size of an average 2yo girl, despite being only 15m. Unfortunately there are no decent pics due to it raining outside and my camera needing things to sit still for more than a split second when I take photos indoors.

I dyed up some more wool too, this time to be given away as a part of the ravelry pink swap. (But I must admit I dyed extra to make something for Maddy, which... ummm... errr... is already on the needles along with half a dozen other projects - woops).

This skein of handpainted wool will join this facecloth and row counter in a package to my swap partner next week.


I just need to turn this little owl into a bag to send it all in first.

Maddy's outfit looks adorable on her. I know about babies being tall, my daughter is more like the height of a 10 - 12 yr old rather than an 8 yr old. She has always been tall for her age! I love the handdyed yarn too, cant wait to see what yours turns into. The owl looks so cute, what a lucky swap pal you have.
