Baby T-Shirt Vest: Take Two

IMG_7127_3442 blog

This could be titled: how not to take a portrait of your baby…sit him in front of a hideously bright colored exersaucer…You will get the elusive: lopsided tooth photo you've been trying to capture for weeks…right in front of  a terrible background :(  Oh well, at least I did capture his mismatched tooth-growing…

Apollo's latest knit creation is hot off the needles! This pattern is called Baby T-Shirt Vest and I found it on the Sam Lamb blog. This is the very same vest I knit for Apollo here. I obviously decided to add a little flair with two colors on this one….and I love, love, love it!

Terrible, cluttered photos, but you can see the cute trim and little buttons. I love how this keeps him toasty warm in our often chilly house.

This is knit in unbelievably soft alpaca yarn, purchased at our local yarn shop: Apple Yarns. You will just have to imagine the cute matching hat is, since he was not posing for photos yesterday! I hope to take him outside (his new favorite place) for some proper pictures soon.

    This doesn’t apply to your post but, it looks like Texas will be cutting $20 million from the school budget locally. We have almost finalized the adoption of our 4 foster children, ages 3,almost 6, 7,almost 9. The older 3 are currently in K,1,2 grades. They are so far behind, first grader is severely hyper(ADHD) and I know the K has some learning disabilities but am not sure what they are yet. Where would you start? I am thinking of going all the way back to the beginning with all 3 and moving on at a pace they can handle. I would so appreciate an help you can offer.

    I finally got one of these made for Owen too, since I loved Apollo’s first one so much. I actually used a combo of the baby and toddler patterns since Owen needs the toddler size, but I didn’t like the ribbing. I love the two toned version though!

    Do you knit with a circular needle when you can? I am learning that I like it better than 2 longer single points. Today I got my hiya longer cables in, 62″ + the 4″ needles on each end, can make quite a wide blanket! The sweater is adorable, the two tone is nice.

    I ONLY knit with circular needles. Anything that can be knit on straight needles can be knit on circular. They are smaller, more portable, and in my opinion, more comfortable.

    TonyM… I thought long and hard about Photoshopping the background
    but decided to leave it. If I tried to fix every shot Id drive myself batty!
