Let me count the ways, folks.....I LOVE this sweater! It seems I love all the sweaters I'm knitting the kids! And there ARE reasons, clearly....I mean, LOOK a the little guy!
(Pause for this brief PSA: the wind was - I KID YOU NOT - 567 mph today, so, pardon my crazy pictures and excuse the shadows. This is Tiberius's FIRST official blog post on his own, aha, and while he happily smiles, I am not a baby photographer.)
This is the Sunnyside (FREEFREEFREE pattern) by Tanis Lavalee of Tanis Fiber Arts. I have some of her yarn for a future sweater for ME, but I have knit nothing else in her yarn, and I'm dying to. This is my first pattern of hers to knit - and I'm beyond excited to one day knit the Lady Sunnyside that she recently published!
The reason this sweater is great is that you can knit it with ONE skein of fingering weight...at least the two smallest sizes, LOL. So, I ordered the colorway Anchors Aweigh on the BFL/nylon base - and here is my project page.

Also, I HAD to use Tessa Ann buttons...naturally!!! As always, Steve and Tessa worked with me, as it's so tricky to find just the right type of button for a wee sweater - and for boys! They offer so many designs, but I wanted to keep it sort of simple, yet fun. I love these tiny dinosaurs!

Not much else to say - I just love it! And they are both wearing hats (I knit Tiberius's here) knit from the Baby's First Hat pattern by Blue Sky Alpaca (that I always modify into bigger sizes). Camden also happens to be wearing her Figgy's Sunki dress (the first one I ever made...two years ago - wayyy too big then, LOL), though you can't see it well in today's pictures. (And while I can find the second Sunki I made camden, I can find no original photos of the one she wore today. So, I'll a photo for the fun of it!)
