Knitting up a Wonderful Wallaby

With getting so juiced about knitting projects for darling Phoebe, I realized that there are so many awesome toddler bit knitting projects available out there. I get most of my inspiration and patterns from Ravelry, an online knitting/crochet community. It's free to sign up and opens you up to a huge amount of projects, people and cool yarn. 

That is where I came across this Wonderful Wallaby knitting pattern. I mostly always buy my knitting patterns online through paypal on Ravelry and they arrive immediately in PDF form. So perfect. But this one I had to buy in print, but was so worth the wAit. :)

It's a really informative pattern and has sizes for everyone from baby to Adult L. I hadn't ever knit a sweater quite like this so it was a learning experience. Fortunately I could check in on Ravelry for hints and help if I needed it from other people who have knit from the pattern. 

It knit up fairly quickly and I'm I love with it. Jack knew I was working on it for him so this morning he was thrilled that it was all done and he could put it on. What a handsome little devil. 

I had to choose between a size 2 or size 4 so I went bigger knowing that he's going to keep growing and I want hi to be able to wear it for more than just a month. 

He wore it around all day and loved it :)! It makes me how happy he was to put it on and wear it knowing I've been working on it for him. Made all the challenges to knitting it totally worth it!
