  4. That is one cute sweater. Do you have a link to the pattern or did you create it. There are a couple of babies coming to my friends families and it would be an adorable little gift.

    1. I have to be honest...I kinda created it!!!
      If you recall the one I made for Vivian...well this was my first attempt...
      I had left it n one of my knitting bags...found it last week...and fixed it up!!! The original pattern is one piece...starting with the back...add on for the sleeves...and then decrease and split for the front...With this one, I added onto the front, by going sideways..if that makes any sense.. I will look for the original pattern...scan it..and email to you..

  7. Adorable outfit for Samuel, what a lovely name for a little boy and a little friend for Vivian. There is nothing better than a handmade gift, the wool is lovely. I would love to learn a skill such as yours. Make sure you teach Vivian how to make them and keep those skills in the family. Superb Linda X

    1. He will be a little friend for Vivian...the mom's are very close friends...
      Don't laugh...I have already decided that I want to teach Vivian to cook!!! SO...I may as well add crocheting and sewing to that list!!!

    2. It's a good idea honestly. I believe that children's experiences with grandparents stay with them into adult lives. Most of my childhood memories were spent with my grandparents in their garden, when I think of family, I am with them. I remember smells, tastes and having great fun. I am sure Vivian will surprise you later with all the good times she will remember.

  8. Adorable. It's a great cheery colour and he'll need a nice sweater set in this weather. You should get a picture of the two pals in their outfits! Please consider a crochet class so we can all learn this....adorable.
