I made both of the boys sweaters in the last year, and yesterday morning Will begged to wear his to school. (What a good boy, he's always loved this sweater and that makes me so happy. Sean is Sean...right now he could care less.)
It was slightly chilly, so I put both of them in their sweater that I had made. Then, even though we were running late as usual, I realized that I had never gotten a photo of the boys together in their sweaters. Well, we will just have to remedy that!
And then I realized.....Will's is a lot shorter on him since the Spring. Uh-oh....this isn't going to fit him much longer, is it!!! I panicked slightly. Ok, a lot. Must. Get. Crackin'. on. Sweaters! These children-of-a-knitter will not be like the cobbler's children, going without shoes.
I got five skeins of dark green acrylic in a de-stash event last May....I could make them matching sweaters! I hate to say "acrylic" but at this age they're very tough on their clothes. Acrylic is easy-care and not expensive. I'll get them the good stuff later on in life.
P.S> Yes, that's Joey's tail. He is pretty adamant that he be in every photo that I take. And no, I don't think he'd wear a sweater. Though I'm not above trying!
