I have been knitting like crazy trying to finish the We Are Knitters Vito sweater which I'm making as a present for my sister ( her birthday is today).. I'm making it in the same colours as the photo. But after some trouble which involved late night knitting in bed and some rows that I messed up I didn't finish it in time :(

|Finished body and super fun label|
The body is finished, but it still has no sleeves.. Hmm, luckily it's warm here in The Netherlands. I'm going to finish the sleeves next week while I'm on holiday! Promise!
I also made a baby present for Manon, I made the Detour Diaper Bag which is a free pattern and I think it looks really cool for a diaper bag! I made it out of green cow leather and paired it with grey canvas. I also added a orange zipper (just because I could). It came together quite quick and I'm very happy with the result.

|I topstitched all the leather bits|
|And a back pocket with velcro|
Manon, the mommy to be, was too, I even saw some tears! And Ray (the baby-daddy) thought I bought the bag (always a compliment!). Ray painted the amazing painting which you see behind Manon in the picture.. Check out his other work, very cool stuff!
