I am pleased to say that the temperature has finally dropped enough here in Wisconsin to pull out the sweaters again. With a choice of either fair trade cardigan or the drive thru my little boy proudly chose “Mama knit jumper!”
It still takes a little sleeve rolling but otherwise it fits like a charm and should last him through the winter into spring. We’ve already received a few nice comments on it, but what I love most of all is how he runs around shouting “Mama knit!”. What more could a mother ask for?
If I made this again I’d love to use something a bit softer against the skin, like Rowan Cashsoft Aran since he does complain a bit about the itchy collar. Not annoying enough to stop him running around, playing in leaves and having toddler fun. I am so looking forward to many cooler days to come, just so we can put this on.
