The Hippy Sack

So, while waiting for the little guy to arrive, some knitting happened! This post is just me wanting to show off really! Both my knitting...and my gorgeous little guy!! He was really sleepy when I took these pictures, but still smiling. That's my sweetie!

The pattern is 'sleepy time' from Pipsqueak Knits. I can't remember what wool I used, but it was a baby merino and it came from my lovely, local knitting shop Treasure. I changed the pattern a bit, as when I was knitting it I thought it was looking a bit narrow. Luckily, Catherine from Treasure is a whizz crocheter so I got her to crochet side panels for it. I also skipped the sleeves as I thought it might be too warm. I LOVE the way it turned out. It's super soft and roomy for my big boy. I knit a cord for the end so it can be left open or closed. It's perfect for keeping him snug when we're out and about or he comes out of the sling for a feed. Hugh christened it the Hippy Sack!!
