Sweaters small and medium

Presenting Avery modeled by Bunny! Finally finished. This is the only even vaguely decent photo (his eyes are blue in real life, not red) I have so far of Bunny in his sweater. In this photo he is leaving the Christmas Pageant where he knew all the hand motions and even sang some of the words.

I will post full details at some point along with better photos. But for those who can’t wait, the pattern can be purchased here and this was knit with KnitPicks Simple Stripes (in a color that seems not to exist any more) and Essential (in Ash).

I also finished and mailed a much smaller sweater. This is the Kimono from Mason Dixon Knitting. I made it in Socks that Rock heavyweight (Seal Rock). The matching socks are in the light weight. I did some pattern adjusting because the yarn was thinner than what was called for. In addition, I did a moss stitch border because I like stockinette, but hate the curl. I thought that with yarn with this much color I didn’t want ribbons so I used clear thread to sew three sets of snaps on for closures. Hopefully I will get a photo of Baby Vivian modeling the ensemble!

Whew!
