I made this vest back in November 2012 for a friend’s son who came to the same parent and child group via the Greenwich Steiner School.
I used this DROPS pattern, but then lengthened it and made the straps a bit longer.
I love the cables on this vest and have knitted it a few times for other people’s children and one for Luke as well and blogged about it here.
I had also just gotten my new labels, hence why there are so many photos of it.
On that note, please excuse the terrible pictures, not sure what happened there.
The second cowl I made last December was for the assistant at Luke’s Kindergarten.
I should have written down some numbers, i.e. stitches and so forth, but of course I didn’t. So I wouldn’t be able to replicate this exact same cowl.
I used the same colour DROPS Merino Extra Fine that I used for Luke’s jumper. It’s such a lovely colour and works really well with this cowl.
I am overwhelmed by this blogosphere! This week we received another gorgeous handmade gift for Max and a little something for his big brother too.
Claire over at Knitting Sandwich made Max this adorable little soft toy… and the best thing about it, it’s got a bell inside so it makes noises too! Max is still a tad too young to actually hold it, but he was genuinely interested in it.
And Claire, who is awaiting the birth of her second child very soon, knows that big brothers are equally important, so she got Luke these amazing Steiner wax blocks for colouring. And Luke loves them and went straight to work.
Thank you so much Claire for the thoughtful gifts, we love them!
Back in November last year I knit two cowls for Luke’s Kindergarten teachers. The first one was for the main Kindergarten teacher.
I used DROPS Merino Extra Fine in purple and used this pattern, but amended it slightly.
I added some stitches and I made I didn’t make it quite as wide as the pattern suggested.
I think the finished piece looks great, don’t you agree?
