Boats and Things

While waiting for my new grandson to arrive I have had all sorts of ideas for things I am going to make for him. Of course, like my own children (one of which was his mother!), he will probably spend the first few months of his new life in vests and babygros. But then, the possibilities…

I have been experimenting with hand-dyed and stripey yarns as you’ve probably seen on previous posts but then I thought ‘it needs more’, perhaps an appliqueed boat?

I haven’t quite decided what to make yet. Cardigans would be popular but wouldn’t work with this yarn as the stripes on the sleeves and fronts would be a different size to those on the back. But I’ll keep thinking – I’m sure I’ll come up with something.
