a new model in the family!

I have been knitting and crocheting lately and I also tried my first sweater. I actually made this sweater at the first of the summer and I was saving it for a special someone who was supposed to be born in September.  He decided he couldn't wait until September and came on August 31st! I had my trip planned for this last week so when I first met him he was already 2 weeks old!

I made a little hat for him.

and this little sweater.  The pattern was for a newborn and this sweater looked pretty tiny when I finished it.

and sure enough it was pretty tiny.
Little Jack is just 2 weeks old but he was a big baby, so I am thinking I am needing to make a little bigger sweater. It will maybe fit him today but I am not sure about tomorrow.

It has been cold here, so he could actually wear it but the sleeves are a little short and it is snug around his middle.

Isn't he just the sweetest little chunker!

I really did rotate these pictures but when they uploaded they went back to the way they were.

"Grandma, make me a bigger sweater!'

We also celebrated my daughter (in law) I hesitate saying (in law) because she feels like she is my daughter, but it was her birthday and I made this hat for her. She is a major BYU fan and today is probably not the day to show this post,  because after last night she is probably in mourning, and this won't be as fun for her.
She did love the hat though!

I also made this owl hat for a friend who is having a baby soon!!

I hope she loves this fuzzy owl hat!

This is another hat I made for her.

It is the time of year to start making those sweaters and hats.
I will just have to re adjust some of my measurements, but I was so happy to make my first sweater!

You are right. They played so CRAPPY last night. It seemed like everything that could go wrong did. Dumb.
I do love the hat though. Thanks :)

Jack is so stinking cute! Hope you are having a great time.

Great job! he IS the cutest little chunker!! I think I made my first mittens out of the same yarn you used for his hat. I love it. Yup, time to make a bigger one, but now you're a pro!

So sweet. The sweater is totally cute too. :0 Congrats on the newest addition. I always like brown for babies and it such an underused color. I was thrilled to see it here. Thanks for linking up to Motivated Monday at BeColorful
