I finished some knitting projects for the kids, but it's taken awhile to get pictures. For me to have the camera handy (with charged batteries), and for them to appear wearing what I made for them requires the planets to line up just so.
Here's Allie wearing the sweater I began for her last January, and which I finished last fall. I blogged about beginning this project here. The pattern is "A Cardigan for Arwen" from the Winter 2006 issues of Interweave Knits. The yarn is Knit Picks "Wool of the Andes" in the iron ore color.
When I finished the sweater, I knitted Alex a vest from this old pattern book. He's a conservative dresser, and these 1967 patterns are classics.
I love using vintage patterns and generally putting vintage materials to use.
This picture of Alex in the vest is blurry, but he was smiling, so I couldn't resist. The vest is knit from Knit Picks "Telemark," in charcoal heather.
Here's a better shot of the sweater, and a serious shot of the boy.
