apparently, elves have a lot of knitwear
HEB: "What do you think, buddy?"
T: "It's my elf sweater!"
[Pauses to put it on.]
T: "When are you going to knit me my elf pants?"
It may have been a complete failure of an idea, but he didn't seem to mind. It's the Child's Placket Neck Pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. This is the third Placket Neck Pullover I've made him. Given the fate of #2, I stuck with the old standard of Blue Skies Dyed Cotton for this one, just like #1. As always, it comes through beautifully for kids knits.
I measured my nephew and knit the sweater to his measurements since he is tall and skinny. But I should have made it one size larger since I couldn't manage to finish it promptly. Maybe it will be a cold spring in Wisconsin and he'll be able to wear it a lot before growing out of it...
