So my boss is having a little boy and she was lamenting the lack of super cute things for baby boys, so I thought I'd try to surprise her with something cute for her little man, not a moment too soon, either as her shower will be very soon.

Here are pics



I haven't entirely finished it. I may add pom-pom eye balls, I'm sort of on the line as I don't want to over do it.

There's a little (ok a BIG) part of me that wants to make one MY size, but that may come at a later date.

It's made with Red Heart's TLC Amore and let me say, if you can avoid working with this yarn, I would. It is great for baby clothes, soft, wash/dry able and non-allergetic, but it's a P.I.T.A. to work with, especially the finishing step. Just my 2

Just too cute! I think that I used that yarn as well and was so ticked at the end with a knot, that I chucked the rest.

 Grin I designed it myself and hope to post a pattern eventually. It's pretty straight forward, just a simple long sleeved hoodie with moss trim in most areas but ribbed extra long cuffs so baby can hopefully grow a little and still fit in it.

Well, then, I'll definitely let you know when I get a pattern together.  Smiley

Right now, I'm working on a toddler sized poncho in crochet as well. That will be TWO little kid's patterns. Let me tell you, it's nice to finish projects so quickly. WEEEEEEE

Oh, me too, I think it's so cute to see kids dressed as animals.
I do think it'd be terribly fun to walk around LA tressed like a dragon now that I'm an adult, though.
