Busy busy little…koala?
Couldn’t resist the post title…
Been a busy fortnight since I posted last – had my sister visit, which was great fun, but tiring, and did some visiting of my own.
Rabbie and her fiancé came down last weekend to stay for a few days before staying at a caravan nearby for a mini holiday. The main purpose of the first part of the visit was for Rabbie to meet Felix. I’ve never seen Rabbie actively interested in holding, cooing and cuddling a baby before, and I’m sure if Felix understood she’d have been honoured that her auntie was smitten!
Later in the week we all went to the zoo and I couldn’t help tease her that her fiancé was definitely looking broody with my Felix! Her response: we’re getting a dog!
Watching them, I think they may need two, or three…
Missing them already as they went back home at the weekend. To keep me busy, I visited my boss last night who just had her own little one – so tiny! Not as small as Felix was j8ust those few weeks ago, but seeing as she’s ‘filled out’ and had a growth spurt…
Anyhow, I can post the presents I gave my boss now without feeling like I’m chancing things! So lots of knitting photos ahead!
Added the bow and scarf in purple as she had a girl.
The head and ‘bib’ are from the pattern, I did a provisional cast on, worked the head as written, removed the cast on and using larger needles, did a three needle bind off then increased the remaining stitches, added arms, then decreased for the ‘body’. I wanted a matching snuggly but couldn’t find one, hence why I winged/butchered this pattern – cute though, right?
Pattern can be found here. There are loads of other cute animals, but I was going with a theme here!
And something a little different, but still matching the colour scheme.Ravelry download can be found here.
For those wondering, my boss is Australian, and I couldn’t resist running with that as a starting point for a theme. Engel tried to convince me to make them all drop bears, but for a baby…koalas they stayed!
Have a good week!
