That’s what I think when I knit or sew anything for my boy now. He’s nine and a half, and someday soon I feel like it just won’t be cool to wear something his mama has made for him and that he won’t be snuggling in my lap anymore (or he won’t fit in it!). Each time he is happy with what I’ve made him, it’s a little celebration. I finally got pictures of him wearing his solstice sweater and thought I’d share here.
Pattern: Boy’s waistcoat by Katya Frankel, size 30″
Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Woodland in Prussian Blue
Knitting friends, this yarn was great! It’s a wool/nettle blend. Yes, I knit with nettles! It has a lovely drape to it and spit spliced like a dream. 🙂
No mods to this pattern, save for leaving off the pockets. Vests for the men-folk are rocking my knitting world! Someday I’ll share the progress on L1’s vest. Knitting is getting a bit difficult as the winter ravages the skin on my fingertips. My skin keeps snagging on my wool, not pleasant.
