Its Beginning to Look A lot like Christmas

Early Christmas celebrating this past weekend with Little Guy and my brother and SIL!
So much fun :)

Happy Christmas

Little Guy seemed pretty happy with his new knits!

Camo Christmas Sweater

Pattern: Knitting Pure & Simple Baby Pullover

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, in Camoflauge

Size: 12 months

Comments: Love this pattern. Used the ribbing for neck and sleeve bind offs, to make a very different look than the Cable Baby Sweater I knit using the same pattern.

Camo Sweater

Check out those "Big Baby Booties that Rock!"

Pattern: Stay on Booties from Knitting for Baby

Yarn: Socks that Rock Heavyweight, color Stormy Weather (used the leftovers from Pa's Thuja Socks)

Modifications: These were a request from Little Guy's mom, since they really are "stay on baby booties." I needed to use thicker yarn, bigger needles, and tweek the stitch count and length so that they fit a 9-month old, and not a itty bitty newborn. Still easy!

Merry Christmas!!

Was there ever a happier baby than one with gorgeous handknits and a peek-a-blocks train?! We have that train too :-)

The sweater is very manly - I like the camo look on a baby :-)

And the booties. Well. They rock.

Little guy is really filling out now and looking more like a little boy than a baby. He is a real cutie.

Merry Christmas Ms Irishgirlie :-)

I don't think he could possibly be any cuter! The sweater looks great too. Merry Christmas!
