After not buying enough of the grey wool, I was lucky enough to find a ball online. It was a different batch but I don’t think it is noticeable now that it is finished. I am just relieved that I could finish this gorgeous little onesie with all of the stripes where they are meant to be.
I like the leg opening of this little suit. I have seen others where the opening at the leg is either non existent or a lot smaller. This buttons all the way down and so should be easy to get the baby in and out of and provide easy nappy changing.
I’m not quite sure what baby can keep in the wee pocket. Probably nothing now as I have sewn it closed with the button going right through so that it wouldn’t sag. Never mind, I don’t think she will want to be keeping any toys in there just yet. I don’t think I did a very good job sewing this little patch pocket on. I will try to do better next time.
UPDATED August 2013 with photo of baby wearing onesie. This onesie was knitted in the 0 -6 months size and it fits her perfectly at 7 weeks and she is an average sized baby.
Photo talking to uncle and wearing my lovely onesie knitted by nana. Excuse the baby spill on the front. The booties are made with Indiecita luxurious baby alpaca and they stay on, even with lots of happy kicking.
I have a few more notes regarding the knitting of this onesie if you are interested on Ravelry. Link provided below.
