FO Friday

I've got a couple of FO's to show off today. First up is a pair of dungarees I made for my youngest daughter. I think I could probably have done with going a size up and making the legs a bit longer but I'm hoping she'll potty train over the Summer so she should get a reasonable amount of use out of them before then. Just thought, I really need to knit her a skirty at some point! When did my baby get so big damnit!

Ahem! Well here she is in her Bayside Britches...


As you can see, she's not very happy about being photographed. Say "cheese" hunny?



She's been a bit of a madam this week. Possibly sleep related or maybe she's coming down with something. Or maybe she's just really fed up with people taking photos of her?


Can I just take a quick picture of the fab mushroom buttons that I've been hoarding for years?


I guess not then!

Aren't toddlers fun! At the moment she is very fond of phrases like "No!", "Stop That!", "Go AWAY!" etc. She's a bit of a tyrant, the other children tend to just back down to her in order to save their eardrums from another of her screaming fits. What a little angel!

Anyways, here is a final photo of her in a more happy mood. She's modelling the Baby Jester hat I made for a friend's little boy.


It's a lovely pattern and great for beginners :-) I sized it up a little because he has a larger head than the "average" 1 year old and I wanted it to have enough room to fit for a while. Hopefully it will be keeping him warm for a few years to come :-)

Thanks for dropping by, more FO Friday posts at Tami's Amis


  1. The jester hat is super cute-- sorry your little one is having fits of misbehaving! hope it gets better :)

  2. I like the overalls, and the hat is great! I'm not looking forward to that aspect of the toddler years!

    1. Thank you :-) Toddlers are fun :-S

  3. Hahahahaha. She's going to look back on these photos some day and shake her head. Both projects are very cute. And, I agree, a skirt is definitely in order!

  4. The overalls are really cute and you can always retake the photos.. like when she's sleeping ;)

  5. I just had to laugh! Oh boy do I remember those toddler two years. I don't miss them for sure. Great projects here.

    1. They are something special aren't they! At least this is the last time I'll have to deal with them >.<

  6. Oh she is adorable! I especially love the ruffled edges of the overalls legs. So, so cute!

    1. Thank you :-) The ruffles are just a simple picot cast off. I considered doing full on ruffles but as the legs were fairly wide anyway I didn't think it would look quite right

  7. Her overall is pretty even though she don't seem to like it ;)
    I sure don't miss those years. But it can be hard to get older kids to model knitwear as well ;)


Thanks for visiting, I love comments :-)
