Summer Overall, with Baby – Blogtoberfest: Day Three

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you might remember that I posted about a Summer Overall for my little man back in February (before he was born, I might add). Well, Luke finally wore it:

The main reason it took so long for him to finally wear it was the fact that we didn’t have a great Summer and it wasn’t really warm enough, and the fact that it was simply to big for him when we did have hot weather in August. So, he had to wait until October, and the hottest Indian Summer in the UK since 1829, can you believe it?

I think he likes it, what do you think? He’s so cute, he’s discovered clapping a few weeks ago and now loves to clap. So I play the ‘pat a cake’ nursery rhyme (the German version of course) with him and he can’t get enough of it.

And doesn’t he look adorable in his overalls? When I was knitting them I thought the colours worked really well and I’m still of that opinion, and it works even better than I imagined. The pattern is great, it’s quite airy, and as it’s made from cotton can be worn even in the hot temperatures we’ve been enjoying here in London the last couple of days.

And would you look at that, baby thighs, feet and hands, one of the cutest things to see in handknits.

  1. What a cutey, love him!!

    If you are thinking of tweaking your blog, I would agree Blogger is fab. I am dabbling with a Blogger one now which needs a big UNDER CONSTRUCTION sign on it. Mum can never remember my Ravelry password so at least she will be able to see what I’ve been making now! I started setting up a wordpress one for J’s family to read when he first arrived but I couldn’t get the look and feel I wanted. I have naturally listed Ms Testadoro’s fully fledged blog on my page by the way! Will check out the Blogtoberfest link thanks honey. x
