Little Boy Blue

Ah sweet nostalgia.......I was searching thru some pictures on my laptop and I came across some photos of a sweater that I made for my son when he was just a little baby. The pattern, which is called Nordica, I chose from Jil Eaton's Little Fish, Big Fish book of patterns. The yarn was a super chunky boucle by Wendy called Unique in a pale blue. I made it a size 2 so he could wear it a long time and he wore it with the sleeves rolled up for quite a while before he grew into it. Even as a baby he loved dinosaurs, so I sewed dinosaur buttons in alternating colors up the front. I wish I could find a picture of him wearing it, I guess I will have to look around a bit.

I love looking back at projects from the past.
