Q's sweater & hat are done! The pattern is Max from Junior Knits (by Debbie Bliss). Yarn is Plymouth Encore (thank you Secret Pal again for the yarn rescue!!). I knit it a little different than the pattern. I knit it in the round, then picked up stitches & knit the arms from the top down (decreasing to fit the # of stitches I had). I discovered that apparently zippers that separate aren't that common. Thank goodness that Hancock just received some 'spring' colors. I hand-sewed the zipper in myself, a move that shows how deep a mother's love really goes. It took forever. (bad close-up picture of the zipper). And I knit him a matching hat (made-up pattern). But when I heard him tell me he loves it, it's the best sweater I've made him, it was all soooo worth it. And check out the stunt that he did for me!
And just because he is so cute too, there's a picture of M wearing his own hand-knit by Mommy sweater & hat. He's also wearing 'pretend' (umm, Target) birks. How cute are they! The look on his face is due to the fact that he is still not feeling well. Poor guy. Although I have enjoyed the so-rare-now-days cuddles with him this past week. They grow up too fast!
