The boy version I did using the correct weight yarn, and it has a less fancy yoke and buttons closed instead of the tie used for the girl version.
My Mom's good friend's daughter is having twins, and I'm making sweaters for them (one blue, one pink). I turned to the 5-Hour baby sweater (which is more like the 7-8 hour sweater) and knit the first one in 2 days in pink. I did not use the correct weight yarn however and so the sweater will be knit again. The one I made would be wearable, but I would hate it if it only fit for a few weeks!
The other note-worthy thing that we did was to attend a children's play at ImaginOn again. we went last year and had so much fun I knew we had to go again. It took a year to get back, but seeing Little Man's face watching The Velveteen Rabbit come alive was heartwarming. Before we left he modeled his peacoat from Auntie Tenasha and enjoyed making funny faces for the camera.
We got to ImaginOn a little early, and while the library area was closed, we were able to enjoy the gingerbread houses that were created by area students and were displayed.
After the performance we were in the lobby when this tree decorated with origami cranes caught my eye. The cranes were made in connection to the play A Thousand Cranes, but it reminded me of my first Christmas tree with Hubby. We folded about 50 gold cranes to decorate our tree. It was simple, and our tree now bears little resemblance to our humble decoration beginnings, but that first tree was still beautiful. It represented one of the first times Hubby went along with a wacky craft idea of mine :)
By the time the play was over it was past Little Man's bedtime and he was getting cranky so we headed home. And I picked up my needles and knit some more!
