Nostalgia inspires...

Today while looking through my pictures I stumbled across this precious picture of my lad the day we went home from the hospital.

I picked out his going home outfit two months before he was born. I was on a walk with my sister and we stopped into Far-Mors boutique.  I saw this little outfit waving at me across the store and I knew I had found it! It had my two favorite little boy colors in it, light periwinkle blue, with vibrant celadon green colored little froggies on it.  I bought it and packed it into my hospital bag. I found a froggie onesie, and hat to match in the following weeks.  This was my most favorite outfit...ok well almost favorite...This is my other absolute favorite outfit.  As you can see I have  an affinity for these color combinations.  

So, I have been feeling like I have left the boy gender out of my creative crochet journey, and today while looking at my boys old pictures, I felt inspired to make a little boy garment.  Here is what I came up with.  

In the same colors as my boys best.
I tried like hell to crochet a frog, but to no avail. 
I settled on my own fish design, and called it a day. 

So today my friends, nostalgia inspired creativity.  
Hopefully some little boys mama will buy this little vest, and always see her little one in it even when he grows out of it, like I do my boy.   

P.S. I still have both of those outfits...
