It Fits!!!!

Long before Jackson was born I knitted 3 sweaters, a collection of little hats and a few pairs of socks. I tried to gauge when he would wear these items as I didn't wish for them to be the right size in the middle of July in Washington DC. The above picture is Jackson and his Mommie. JST is wearing a sweater I made in size 9 months and fits right on time. He looks so sweet, and so does his mother. I love seeing these items on him. Yarn is Encore that wears like cast iron for baby items. Easy to knit with and great colorways.
All dressed and ready to go to day care, but time for one more bottle. Such a little man with his bluejeans and sweater. Jackson has 2 teeth with 2 more soon to be in, weighs 17 lbs now and is pulling himself up to everything. He wants to walk and is very close to doing so. His personality is now so cute, I am only sorry I don't live near him to see all these changes. His brothers and sisters are doing fine. I get updates as they are busy teens and almost teen.

I posted these photo's as I can't discuss what is currently on needles they are Christmas gifts. Yesterday was Black Friday and for the first time I can ever remember I worked retail. Now granted there were not mobs lined up at the door when we opened but the shop was very busy. Lots of yarn for scarves, mittens and socks and other fast knit little items went flying out the door. I sold knit kits, the book on 'Beginning Knitting', needles and a skein of yarn. I think those are great get started gifts. In a time of financial crisis we don't seem to see a cut back on buying wonderful yarns. If a person is going to spend hours creating something they want good yarn.
