Easter Outfits.

Charlie and I both sported new knitwear for Easter. We stopped by the lake after church yesterday for photos.

His onesie fits perfectly, which, considering the pattern comes in just one size (3-6 months) is a miracle. The pattern was easy enough, but the finishing was fiddle-y (miles of 1x1 ribbing on size 1 needles is always going to be fiddle-y, I guess).

Thank goodness Marc was home to help me with the snaps. This is the first time I've ever used a hammer to finish a piece of knitting!

I'm pretty happy with my Xenia cowl, too. In all, a huge success!

  2. I'm glad you got such great pictures of Charlie in your Easter labor of love. All that tiny knitting on tiny needles (plus the hammer!) is amazing. Lovely onesie, cowl, and family!
