One of the best things about getting ready for Henry last winter was planning things that I would make for him, and though he'd only get cold months at the beginning and end of his first year I still had plans! Here are the two sweaters I made for him for his first couple of months, I have a third sweater I made for him for this fall so that will have to wait until he fits in it. They were both made from yarn I already had, leftovers from past projects.
The first was his "Grandpa Sweater" - pattern HERE -
This is him in it at about 3 weeks old (note the rolled up sleeves).
And this is him in it last week (note the now short sleeves).
Wooden buttons were a gift from his Grandma. I plan on removing them and putting them on a bigger version of this I'll make this fall.
And his Kimono sweater - pattern HERE -
Button from a jar of buttons I got as a gift years ago.
I like the Kimono pattern, but love the Grandpa Sweater. I have plans on making Henry a new one for this winter, along with one for his 2 boy cousins, one who will be almost 2 and one who will be arriving in September. I think I'm going to go for a solid grey, red or brown this time around.
