Seeing Double

So here is the finished product for JJ's little guys. This pattern is so easy to knit and goes fast. Too bad I don't have any more toddler boys to knit for.

I had to use the flash so the stitch definition would be clear. So, the colors are slightly off. I really think that JJ's boys will enjoy these sweaters with a pair of khaki shorts and sandals. Little Man looked adorable in it (his was the larger size) with white linen pants.

I had stated that the yarn matched perfectly despite a three year difference in knitting time. Well, I was wrong. The smaller size is a touch lighter than the larger. Yet to someone watching a toddler and infant, they will never notice. So, what the hey?!

JJ's new little man is due any day, with a scheduled induction for July 14. Um, sounds painful. We are all waiting with bated breath for the new little man to arrive. I'll keep you posted.

An now for the exciting details. I blogged about this here.
