Okay having such a handsome model doesn’t hurt either ūüėČ

I made this sweater over the summer with plans for it to be a Christmas gift. However we made a last minute decision to head south and visit family for the holidays. Which meant that some of the planned Christmas gifts were held over for birthdays. So here is the birthday boy modeling his Silas¬†sweater. Probably won’t be able to wear it long now, but I can always put it in storage for the next little man in line.

Here are the other post related to this project.

Silas Sweater Complete

 First of all, here is the link to this fabulous sweater.

 I bought the yarn Cascade 220 Superwash Aran from Jimmy Beans Wool. I am so pleased with the way it knitted up. Soft, yet warm, and durable.

Since I am gifting it to a little boy, it needs to be strong and washable. I opted for plastic buttons, as again this is for a little boy. Thought plastic would hold up better than wood.

 Finished product waiting to meet its new owner.

Frozen Upon A Time Update…

Hubby had to leave a “stupid thirty” (slang for way early) so I got up and knit in peace and ¬†quite until our “PacMan” got up ¬†and needed my attention.

So if you have not ordered this yarn before, you totally should! Its wool so it is warm, and  it has a cool temperature to touch like silk. There are several options that are not pink.  I want to make some baby blankets from this yarn. Did I mention its machine  washable? Head on over to JimmyBeansWool and grab some of this for yourself. And if you feel like it, tell them Whitney Creath sent you, in the referral box.
