How far we’ve come

When it comes to knit sweaters, Eily started out like this: with a lot of resistant.  He ended up wearing that sweater only twice.   

But with this one, he picked the wool himself.  Wore it eagerly the first day it was done (though I may decide to rip out the neckline a second time – I don’t like that it didn’t size up as well as Gabe’s). And he continues to wear it, even directly over a t-shirt.


Never expect your three year old to appreciate a handknitted gift.


(To be honest, Gabe’s disgust has to do with me asking him for a photo shoot – for etsy purposes – of the neckwarmer and nothing to do with the cardinal hoodie but it brought back memories and when i looked back at Eily’s picture, i couldn’t resist the comparison.)
