Simon's 1st birthday

My nephew Simon turned 1 year old on Saturday! I can't believe how time flies! I knit him a birthday vest:

Simon's birthday vest

Pattern: Merino 5 Baby - Toddler Vest by Crystal Palace Yarns
Yarn: Interlacements Dyers Choice - worsted weight
Needles: size 8
Mods: I only did 5 rows of ribbing on the neck and arms instead of 10.

I like the buttons on the shoulder for easy on/off on a wiggly toddler too!

I ended up buying a complete outfit with a second vest - so I could put my vest on the outfit instead. I think it looks cute!

Simon had a fun birthday party too - here is eating his birthday cake.

Happy birthday Simon!
