Notes

25 Feb 2011: Ignore the foundation esc in the photo with the mouse toy. I ripped it and started again using a plain-old foundation chain, as the pattern calls for. (The Fesc looked too open; I could have used Fsc instead, but decided to go with Robyn on this one.)

24 March 2011: Finished! I didn’t do the colourwork, because the turquoise contrast colour I originally had wasn’t going to result in the look I wanted, and I got to the shoulders (where the colourwork is) before I was able to pick up some navy yarn. So I just worked the whole body (front and back) in the main colour, and did the ribbing at the hem, armholes and neckline, and a border for the zipper, in the contrast colour. Other than that, the only other modification I made was to the neckline. My kid doesn’t like having things touch his face, still, since it triggers his rooting (feeding) reflex. So instead of making the stand-up collar, I just worked a 3-stitch rib at the neckline.

If it’s any help, Owen’s just turning 3 months old in the photo – he’s kinda big for his age.
