O currently has three mama-made sweaters languishing away in his closet. He’s recently started giving some thought to his own attire, and it’s become a rare occasion that I can convince him to wear a sweater at all. He is, however, delighted to have all the hats and mittens I can pull off my needles. (Perhaps that is because hats and mittens are required for outdoor play right now? Hmmm… Yes, I think maybe.)
N is just the opposite. Keeping hats and mittens on her is quite a challenge, but she is more than happy to snuggle into a mama-made sweater! Funny how different siblings can sometimes be!
When I realized a couple of months ago that I had knitted (and loved the knitting of) several Baby Surprise Jackets for O but none for N, I was a bit surprised with myself. How did that happen? I mean, let’s be honest… I adore the BSJ! No matter though, I’ve made up for my slight over-sight in short time. N now has two BSJs and I’ve once again gotten my knitterly fix (for a little while anyway).
Her favorite part of her new sweater? The buttons, of course!
N’s first BSJ is here.
