Happy New Year to everyone! May you be happy and healthy all year long!

I am kicking off this year with a brand new pattern. This one is rather special to me because it’s my first ever knitting pattern. I mean, it’s the first one I have designed and written down for my pattern shop. It’s fun to have a knitting pattern after 63 crochet ones I made before. A special beginning to a hopefully special year.

The pattern describes how to make a Hooded Baby Jacket. The jacket is suitable for babies age 0-3 months. I think the jackets can make lovely gifts for the little humans you or your loved ones may be expecting…

The pattern that I prepared for those of you who are interested, is packed full of pictures and step by step instructions. You can find it in my shops here or here.

I hope you will have as much fun with this project as I had.

Happy knitting!

Baby Orangutan

Last weekend we visited a zoo.

I know, these institutions might not be perceived positively by some, but I assure you that the animals in this zoo receive very good care and loads of love.

And this is where we happened to find the cutest baby in the whole universe… a little baby orangutan.

It is him.

Being one year of age, his main activity throughout the day is to have as much fun as physically possible.

And in his case, that is A LOT…

It took him about half a second to get from the above position…

… to this.

Then a very special dramatic gesture ensued…

… followed immediately by rolling over and grabbing a piece of a nutshell (because nutshells are just so much fun!).

And of course, striking the cutest pose imaginable was a must.

You’ve won my heart baby orangutan.

If you had a Twitter account, I’d follow you right away.

Nevertheless, I have this strange feeling I’ll see you again very, very soon…
