Time flies...

I can't believe it's been a year! My wee one isn't so wee any more... The year has flown by like you won't believe. I'm so proud of my little boy, he makes me laugh every day and because of him there's always an extra twinkle in my days.
We celebrated big time with a felt birthday crown made by mum (he actually kept it on his head for quite some time...)
There were little pals;
A bright red and loud present,And home made banana cake!! (Banana is his favorite, he calls it 'naan naan') Turns out he only ate the whipped cream (sweatened with fruit sugar instead of regular) and the slices of banana on top. To be honest, I completely understand, the cake wasn't that great, I went wrong where I go wrong in patterns all the time. I read... act out what I've read and then read the following part that says; 'AT THE SAME TIME.....'. OW!! So it was more of a banana biscuit than it was a cake. Hey it's the thought that counts right?A year ago my friend Yvon gave me a couple of her home dyed skeins, named after Iep. A great birth present! I've been casting on an off about five times, but could never decide what to make. The yarn was a bit too bulky for a small baby, but now it's great for a big boy sweater and so I made him a very basic but bold sweater.
The colors are fantastic, it's brown and fluorescent yellow (pictures tone it down way too much)!
I used one and a half skein of chocolate Phildar Partner I had lying around for the edgings and arms.
The buttons (closed in the back) I found in a supermarket in France this summer. I used them on a coat for Iep first, but they were too big. I'm on the lookout for smaller wooden buttons for that one now...
Gotta go, my big boy wants naan naan!
