Toddler Sweater


My son started going through some of his drawers in his bedroom. I know there's a lot of old clothes in there that we should donate. As we made our way through his bureau, I found this adorable sweater I knit for him when he was little. I had forgotten all about it! I used to knit a lot when the kids were little. It was easy to bring with me if the kids wanted to play outside. I had started to quilt but could never seem to find the time to sit at the sewing machine.


I even bought baseball buttons! I think Ben wore this when he 2-3 years old. He turned 23 years old this past Valentine's Day. I can't believe it! This sweater made me sad to think of all the years that have passed.

We're holding on to it. There's no way I could ever donate this sweater! I'm hoping maybe someday his little boy will get to wear it. Not for awhile though! Plenty of time for that!!

  1. Oh that is an adorable sweater--and both my son's and daughter's children have worn sweaters I made for them when they were little. I recall knitting at pre-Little League games a lot...and on the beach.....hugs keep that sweater safe....hugs, Julierose

Slab Runner Quilted

Here's my slab table runner. I'm enjoying the process of sewing down the binding. It's a great excuse to watch television! ...
