It's sweater weather!

When I started making these sweaters, I didn't know how addicting they would become. I finished another one that was the same pattern as my very first sweater, but I made it a little bigger.  I still need to make a bigger one for baby Jack, but I had these colors and I kind of liked the color combination.

I added the pink and green ribbon and pink buttons and I loved how it finished the sweater.

I am quite happy that I can make a sweater now and even though they take a lot of time, it is a real sense of accomplishment when  I am finished.

Here is the little sweater that I made for baby Jack and it was too small.

The football buttons finished this one as well.

I will have to find a tiny baby for this one.

and of course my sweater for Livy. I feel like maybe I have learned something in knitting!  The weather is getting cooler so it is definitely sweater weather which makes it definitely knitting weather!

Oh Boy, I love your sweaters and the colors are the best! Have you mentioned the pattern? I especially like the style of the first bunch, which look like they could be from the same pattern

All your sweaters are great but I just love the first one with all the eye poppin color.

Oh, what super cute sweaters. The pink and green is my favorite but the brown reminds me of a little corduroy coat I made for my son in 1979 that had football buttons on it. Something to cherish for sure. Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

I love all of your projects. I wish I knew someone who was having a baby so I could knit a cute sweater like those.
