Yep. It is that time of year again. When I start thinking about the sweaters to make for my kids for the Christmas card photo. Last year was perhaps the last year. My mother gives me that look like....are you sure you want to put Charlie (who is soon to be thirteen....yikes) in a sweater handmade by his mommy...look. And maybe last year should have been the last year. But I can't seem to let it go. I have been doing it for eleven years....it is just sort of part of us now. The problem is, patterns for that age group are just so hard to find.
I found the yarn I want to use. And it is so lovely! All tweedy, and cool, yes? I plan on using the light grey for Andrew. The charcoal grey for Charlie. And I am thinking vests. Tweedy, cool vests. Yes?
I couldn't find a pattern for Libby either. So I pulled a couple combinations together.
