I think we're about due for another installment in the baby-in-handknits series, don't you? Let us proceed, then.
This pattern, I must tell you, is one that sent me straight from the online pages of Ravelry to my basket of yarn to see what I could start it in immediately. Because I knew Harper (and his Mama) needed this vest in a big way. Now that it's done, I do believe this vest on that belly makes me want to kiss him about a hundred thousand more times a day than I already do. Which was already about a hundred thousand kisses a day. So there you go.
The vest pattern is Pebble (a Cobblestone-Inspired Manly Baby Vest) by The Thrifty Knitter, generously offered as a free pattern on her site. I knit it up in a mere one half skein of Rowan Felted Tweed. The pattern works up to be a true 0-3 months size, so I knew it's time on Harper was limited. My solution? Put it on him nearly every single day that it does fit, and...
...cast on immediately for a bigger one. This second one was knit with some handspun from Chili (Thank You, Marcela!), and with wood buttons from Peace Fleece.
Ah, it's such a relief to know that the baby-belly-in-woolen-vest will continue for many more months to come. Yes!
