This one has nothing to do with the knitting weekend, the entry for which I am still working on. This is the sweater I made for my brand new nephew L. I finished it about a month ago, but never posted. The wool is Big Mexico and the pattern is a kids' basic sweater from one of Paton's books. It originally had a froufrou appliqué heart in the middle of the chest, but I like the self-striping wool so much better. I have bright colours and I'm not afraid to put them on your child!



I had to hustle on this one, little dude is growing like a weed. He's just over 2 months now and is at 13lbs2oz; close to double his birth weight. I don't think he's going to make it to wear this in the fall, good thing we're having a cool spring.
Who does she think she is?

Thanks, me too! I'm working on his visual stimulation *g* That and he'll never be lost in a crowd, even if he is only 2' tall

Why do kids get all the best clothes? It's not fair!

Because they don't mind mixing checks and polka dots. Adults try it they're 'eccentric'.

The colors of adult clothes suck, too.

That's a "basic" sweater?! It's just gorgeous! Seriously, that's a sweater to take a portrait in!
