The payoff!

This is my new buddy wearing the sweater I knit for him.  He wore this home from the hospital (what an honor!) and then they came in to see me at work yesterday and he was wearing the other sweater!!  I couldn't be more thrilled.  I love covering babies in wool and I love when their mothers put them in the sweaters, lol. 

Back to this sweater.  This is the Puerperium Cardigan.  I've posted about it before but it definitely deserves repeating.  This is the cutest, funnest, simplest little baby sweater and it's a great use of that one beautiful skein of handpainted sport weight yarn that lots of you have languishing in your stash right now.  I used Play At Life Fiber Arts in Boundless Sport for this (my go-to indi-dyer). 

Then there's this sweater.  It's the sock yarn sweater by Hannah Fettig (my go-to top-down designer).  Again, I used a skein of fingering weight yarn from Play At Life Fiber Arts.  And do you see that hat on his head?  It's an eyebrow hat, which works out because he doesn't have much by way of eyebrows, lol. 

In other news, I finally got my drivers license renewed so I am a legal driver again, AND I put down a deposit on a used Camry.  If things go as planned I'll be driving again by the middle of next week :)

  1. Wow! What a great friend you both are - you to knit TWO sweaters for your little buddy and new Mom for showing off your hand knits. What a treasure. What a cutie.

    Congrats on your drivers license. You've been very busy!
