handknits in action (Christmas day edition)

Child's Placket Neck Pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, in Plucky MCN Fingering, held doubled. Only mods were to add the stripe and to leave off the buttons. Since I wasn't doing the buttons, I sewed about an inch and a half of the placket closed. And, yes, that is the 4-to-6 year-old size on my 3-and-a-half-year-old nephew.
Umbilical Cord hat from S'n'B, in Rowan Cotton Glace. No mods, except that I was working from memory so I ended up making the newborn size a little long.

Happy Christmas!

Oh, the pink and red totally match her little baby face! Also: Thomas is pretty adorable.

Congrats on the newest addition! Glad the hat is in full use. Also, I hope you didnt start over with that sweater. It looks great.

KZ: I didn't start over with the sweater, just blocked it vigorously twice. It does fit him well right now, although it looks like he'll grow out of it in a week or two. I've told Andrea that I'll tear it out and redo it when it's too small.
