Night Owl

Alex just turned 8 and I don't know how many more times I'll be able to cajole him into posing in his PJs. I made these back in December and they have been worn and washed many times.

The patterns for both top and bottom are from Ottobre 6-2009 - #34 and #35. The top has raglan sleeves. The neckband turned out way narrower than I expected which makes me wonder if Ottobre has changed their neckband pattern pieces or method (I don't know since I didn't read the instructions, oops.) I'll have to go back to making neckband patterns by eyeballing the length and making them the width of my ruler - not very scientific, but I've gotten better results that way.

This is a peaceful view of our backyard (if you can look beyond the back of Alex). You can just barely see that the trees are starting to green out. It's been a long time in coming.
