August so far...
1 August: my first crochet effort! I've since learnt that what I thought was an 'hdc' stitch I was doing was actually 'sc' so this hat ended up a bit, well, munted. But I love the little monkey hat and am working on some more little crochet things now that I know how! Also in the pic are the handmade bib, dolly and blanket.
2 August: Dribble bibble with monkey muslin
3 August: Charcoal grey cable knit cardigan and matching beanie, knitted by my mother-in-law for the wee guy.
4 August: the matching stripy beanie which was knitted with leftover wool from this cardy I knitted while pregnant and not sure if I was having a blue or pink baby. It's miles too big even now!
5-7 August ... the weekend of the fever. Poor kid was bouncing between 38-40deg temperatures and he spent the weekend in nappy and muslin, and little more.
8 August: nappies galore!
9 August: these are some little slippers knitted by the boys' great-grandmother, they now have a couple of pairs each and in lots of beautiful colours! And she must know how fussy I am, they are all in 100% wool. Thanks Grandma!
10 August: still not feeling too well (hence the dummy, I think it soothes his poor sore throat) we headed out to visit friends and kept the little head warm with the monkey beanie. and the Dr Seuss bib caught a bit of the baby chuck. poor little kid doesn't respond well to the new drugs.
11 August: handmade galore! monkey beanie, brown overalls and cowpokes kimono.
