Wee sweater, modeled!

The Wee Boy’s sweater was finally dry today, and we had some nice outings that provided good backgrounds for FO photos.

I thought it might be a tad fitted, but it turns out he has plenty of room to grow!

As a bonus, the Girl wore her Wonder Woman sweater, so I got a few good shots of it as well.

   
 

Gramps cardigan- done!

Today all I had left in this cardigan was the pockets and elbow patches. Luckily we were able to squeeze in a trip to Imagiknit for buttons, and I finished the embellishments while we watched Toy Story this evening. After the kids were asleep, only the buttons remained!

As you can see, I chose super gramps-y buttons!

I always forget how little I enjoy sewing on embellishments! I did okay to poorly with the elbow patches, but I might just let them be. I secretly hope that I can spiff them up with blocking. Wishful thinking, probably, but overall, I’m satisfied, and more importantly, it both fits and pleases the wee boy!
