It's safe to carry on reading, i know the temperatures are soaring and it's mighty hot here in the UK this weekend, but rest assured there are no 'naughty' pics in this post, it's all about knitting, not stitching LOL
Here's the completed outfit for dolly. DH returned Tuesday to do some more work on their vehicle and was delighted to report they caused a lot of excitement. Having just become the big sister to a newborn brother was causing some jealousy recently so mum and dad had bought baby Mary (as we now know dolly is called) together with special nappies (it's ok Barb the nether regions are covered LOL) and clothes so 'big sis' could help and be just like her mum. Just as you would expect from a 3 year old, there was a cry of, but she's got no pyjamas when its bedtime.
DH was returning again Friday with the new part for their car, so i knitted a set of 'pyjamas' in record time using a ball of the variegated wool i had recently picked up in the sale bin. We thought it looked a bit like those floral flannelette pj's that children wear. It's from exactly the same pattern book as the first jacket but i've adapted it to have a collar and it does up with press studs so she can learn another new skill. The little trousers have elasticated waist for ease.
When DH returned home on Friday, he brought me this handmade thank you card from the little darling, isn't it lovely. Look at all the jumbled up wool that is on the front! Mummy has written inside to say that they are very grateful and to thank me for the lovely clothes.
Have a lovely weekend, hope the weather is as nice for you as it is here. It's back to some stitching for me this weekend, i might even get the monthly ornie finished.
