FO No. 21 - Baby Hooded Jacket

Pattern: Patons Handknits book 961, Baby Jacket
Size: 12 months
Wool: Feathersoft 8 ply, about 5 and a half balls.
The baby jacket is finished! Hooray. I sat on the couch yesterday and seamed it together. The photo is a bit dark though as yesterday was miserable weather. I rolled up the cuffs on the sleeves too, but now realise it makes them look too short. Oh well rolling them down again will fix that problem wont it. I hope that our friends will put it on their baby as I am not really sure what they think about handknits for babies, as this is their first. I also bought some little shoes too, and I will wrap it up tonight. Hopefully we can visit them sometime soon. I also started another little girl's baby cardigan, and this one should knit up quite quickly. Paul's cousin had a little girl on Thursday, Asher, and she was a bit early so I need to hurry up and finish that one too. I only cast on last night so I might be able to finish it during the week.
Also Isabelle has lost 2 more teeth in the last week. She lost one whilst bouncing on the trampoline with her brother (and yes it was already loose), and last night she lost one whilst munching on some chocolate. She thought she had broken her big tooth, but I explained it was the little tiny one next to it. The tooth fairy seems to be a regular visitor at the moment, and of course she has to have her school photos next month, so now she will have gaps. She also has two other loose teeth, so it could be four gaps by then. She always seems to lose them a few at a time, and of course losing teeth means she has a bit of a cold too. It always happens, so now we expect her to have the snuffles. I hope that it goes by next Friday as she has her birthday party at McDonalds then. She is all excited about it, and hopefully I can get some nice photos of her with her friends. Well that is it for now as we have one of her friend's birthday parties to go to today, and then I have a little bit of running around to do for her party next week. Hopefully I can get some presents wrapped today too.
By the way thank you so much for all the lovely thoughts about the bag. I used it last night for my knitting and it fit so much into it. I am sure that I will be using it quite a bit. So I must go, and have a wonderful weekend.

This pink cabled hoodie is so sweet! My son's been losing his front teeth too :)

That sweater is almost too cute for words! I'm sure they will love it! I think little kids with missing teeth are so sweet and cute looking! Happy knitting I'm sure you'll finish in no time at all!

What a beautiful sweater! That pink is so pretty. My sister's 2 youngest have lost teeth in the last 2 weeks. Must be going around.

My eldest's one has two new lower front teeth growing out from behind her milk ones which are still there. Very strange indeed but the dentist said no need to pull out the milk teeth yet and just let them take their own course.

The little baby jacket looks great. I still haven't attempted zippers, but I think they're in my future!
