I've finished another merino top for DS, woudl take a photo but he's wearing it with backwards pants, a bib and socks with sandals right now.. :? I went to cook dinner and came back to my baby dressed all weird, DP must have changed his nappy lol.

So thats 3 merino tops now :) I have a denim/cotton skirt to make for myself (can't wear pants on wet days cos my short legs mean they sock up all the water, so winter = skirts with tights lol) maybe a pair of pjs for DS, but he might be ok with the ol pairs we have already, definately at least 1 pair of pants for him though.

Also have to dye some wool to be knit into handwarmers for flatmate's bday in May cos she's always cold and I love my handwarmers in winter :D

Wow! Gorgeous things you have both made :smt060

mum2girls, I need to make myself some winter clothes too. I might check out the local fabric shops for some thickish knit this week, and make myself some more long-sleeve tops. I have a black one that I made last year and I love it, so I might undo it :twitch: :lol: and use it as a pattern to make more.

I think DD is pretty much sorted, just a dress that is already cut out and needs sewn up. Then will have to buy her some winter shoes/boots to wear when we go out places, and maybe make her another woollen hat. Actually, I might knit her a woollen singlet/vest to wear too, one that could go over the top of a plain long-sleeve tshirt.

DH, well, he has asked me to knit him a balaclava to wear when he bikes to/from work, which is fair enough cos it's pretty cold at 6am in winter. Should probably get onto that soon :whip:

Here is the start of mine. A fleece hoody for DS and some matching olive cords (photos don't show colour that well). I have three more pairs of cords cut out (different colours) and planning to do some over the head sweat tops since they are so hard to buy these days. Ignore the wonky sewing and crooked pockets on the hoody. I was mainly just trying the pattern out as I'm thinking of doing one in merino.

Now that I know how to do it - yes. I may tweak a few things though.
