T'was two weeks after Christmas...

...and all through the house, were sweaters and mittens not even yet blogged! The sweaters were draped on the children with care, awaiting their pic for their mama's blog fare ;0)


The sweaters were winged from this custom-fit pattern with Bershire Bulky in oatmeal and red-ern. The letters were charted with this neat knitter's paper, using big fonts that mama picked hoping they'd flatter. And then for the cuffs, hem, neckline and border: a 2 by 2 rib and a stockinette curler.


The boys loved their sweaters and mama did too, though they got very pilly as Julian ran through the pews. There'll be mittens and more in my next post for sure, but for now how about pics from Christmas of yore ;0)




"Happy two weeks post Christmas and to all a good night!"

  10. Cute stuff. So glad I found your site! I had plans to make a X-mas countdown with little socks for my girls-didn't happen - should probably start now so it gets done on time for this coming season:) You have inspired me with what you made!

    Love the initial sweaters! So adorable.
