Fun, Quick, Easy, Cute


So, here's the sweater I knitted up for James on Wednesday/Thursday, when I was procrastinating on making Graham. (By the way, I am so flattered and humbled by your response to him. Thank you.) The sweater is the "Like Father, Like Sons" sweater from The Yarn Girls' Guide to Kid Knits, which was my first actual knitting book (I got it a few years ago), although this is the first thing I've made from it. sweater back too

The yarn is a double strand of Ironstone Yarns Harmony, and it's on size 17 needles, so when I say it knit up quickly, I am not exaggerating! It's bulky and thick and oh-so-warm. A perfect outside sweater.

here we go!

When I first put it on James (last night), he wailed "Owie" over and over. But today he's seemed to like it, which is good since he's probably going to be wearing it a lot.

oh, my! he's a little boy!
