The sun is actually shining today and I thought I'd prove it by doing a big "no no" and taking a photo in direct sunlight. It feels great to have sun on top of two feet of snow! This is a sweater that I designed for Junior and finally finished during the storm.
Both Junior and sister wanted a real knitted tail sewn onto it. I can imagine the first wearing of it: She grabs it as he's running away with her Easy Bake Oven, he face plants down the stairs, the oven flies out the window, and we end up in the ED with 14 staples in his head and a shattered window. Better off with kids like Junior to just sew the tails right into the sweater - i.e. stripes. With motherhood comes wisdom.
