Yarn Along

The monkey was ready just in time for my little guy’s arrival back home.

I literally just finished the Pepita onesie. I have decided to knit the socks separately, to increase the length of time it can be worn according to how long it took me to finish that thing!

I’ll show you a proper picture and put my notes on Ravelry once the ends are sewn in and I’ve made sense of my scribbles.

The buttons are from Germany. I bought them back in July when I got the yarn. It took me a while to find them, because I’d forgotten what they looked like! I thought I had gone for the cream hedgehog ones… but I’m sure these ones will be just fine.

Now I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else has been up to..

    Alas, no Yarn Along post for me this week – birthday preparations, freelance work and appointments for Bea all took over! Looking forward to getting back on it next week.

    PS – Glad you liked my birth story – I can’t believe that was a year ago already! Wow! Hope your third trimester is going well.

    The monkey is so cute! Both of.my girls said they want me to make them one. I tried explaining that it is beyond my skill level at the moment.
