Whew! The 3-year-old is napping and the newborn is asleep in the carrier on my chest. A few minutes of free time, yahoo! I quickly wanted to post a couple of gratuitous baby photos, but also share some lovely knits that my Mom made for Henry. As you know, Yaya is super productive when it comes to knitting and sewing. Not only did she make Ben 3 awesome sweaters for the winter, when she arrived in Seattle a few days before Henry's birth, she had knitted 2 adorable little cardigans to welcome him.
They're both still a tiny bit big but that's okay, winter hasn't officially started yet!
Here's the first one, a lovely grey. That's Henry at 9 days old.
And here's the second one, a sweet blue-green. Do you recognize the pants? I love dressing Henry in Silas' clothes, it makes me think of you guys through the day! This is Henry at 18 days old.
It's crazy to see how much he's grown already! I can't wait for him to start smiling, these newborn photos are a bit too serious.
I believe the pattern for at least one of these cardigans is from Debbie Bliss's Baby Knits for Beginners. Here's a photo from the book. Maybe Yaya can chime in in the comments and correct me if I'm wrong.
I have a project of my own that I recently made from that book that I will try and post soon. I am itching to start a new knitting project but am short on time and energy these days. All right, I'm off to try and finish Henry's stocking before my 2 little dudes wake up. 3-2-1 GO!
Jenny, Henry is the most beautiful baby I've ever seen! He's just perfect. The sweater you knit for Silas last year still fits, and I love it so much. I'll be sure to post a picture soon! These two sweaters are definitely going in the "to do" file.
