Middle Kid Sweater

Source: Pipsqueaks, by Kim Hargreaves
Pattern name: Harry
Yarn: knit picks wool of the Andes worsted jalapeno

I have finished the 4th sweater in my group of family sweaters sadly Zac doesn't really like his sweater despite his happy face and thumbs up signs(I bribed him to look happy in the pics).
He says, "It's itchy and it feels weird and I don't like green anymore."
Poor Zac :( He wants hand knits from his mom, but he's sooo picky and changes his mind too often. What's a kid (or mommy knitter) to do?

Little Girl Sweater

I love watching a lace pattern emerge. All those yfwd's and k2tog's were
worth it.

Then when the sweater is all finished, you get to enjoy and admire your FO.
Except when it is made for a growing, wiggly, bouncing, silly little gal.

I made the 3-4 size and it's probably a little short. I thought when I was knitting, "this looks short, but the lace edge will make it longer." Well I guess I estimated the lace bigger, oh well she still looks like a sweet little Angel.

This picture is a great close-up of my favorite part of this pattern, the ruffly sleeves .
