Yarn Along :: On the Go-veralls

The other day I was sorting thru the hand-knits when I came across this Pebble Vest I originally knit for Ezra when he was 21 months. It fit him well but on the snug side. I thought I’d see how it fit on Ishmael (soon to be 9 months):

Just about perfect. And he looks so darn cute in it too!

Between the cuteness and the realization that the time period where he’ll happily wear any hand knit item I put him in is already rapidly growing short I knew I had to cast on something. And that made me think of these On the Go-veralls I knit for Noah way back when I first started knitting.

Suddenly it all fell into place- I had the perfect yarn stashed away just waiting for the right project.

The yarn is Mirasol- an alpaca and bamboo blend. It’s gorgeous. I just love the yellow and gray; it’s knitting up fast too. It will be interesting to see how complicated these seem this time around. Thus far it’s been way easier….maybe because this time around I  know that circulars come in different lengths.

Oh and what have I been reading? Lots and lots of Berenstain Bears.
