Well it turned into something more like this (through no fault of it’s own):
And since sweater weather isn’t exactly over yet in Northern Idaho, I had to knit him a new one. I really prefer breathable wool for smooshing into carseats – with a hat and a good blanket they are more than warm enough, but don’t get all sweaty in transit. I was in a hurry this time and thought I better use some yarn from the stash (I’ll have to tell you about that sometime). Ended up making quite the wild sweater – but it is big enough and warm enough. And the baby inside it just kills me more and more every day.
His Daddy was really pleased that the first one, worn in Fall, channeled the Chicago Bears. This one clearly is channeling the Cubs, right? With all the wooden button/ bat symbolism in play? We are just saying yes, it was totally on purpose. Of course it was.
