This year I had the bright idea that my children NEEDED Christmas sweaters. Nope, they could not wear any of the sweaters I have already knit them, they needed awesome new coordinated set of sweaters. It’s not the first time I’ve wanted kiddies to wear matching sweaters, especially for their epic Santa pics, you can see Hunter and Jones’ first Santa pic together here, and this it the one from last year:
This is the first year having all of my 3 babies together on Santa’s knee, it was time to go big! I decided on a black and white-ish theme this year, just to mix things up. I originally wanted this to be a stash busting project but that lasted about 5 minutes. I picked up some YOTH and Hazel Knits at Knit Fit in Seattle while I was there and while I had 1 skein of Tosh Vintage in Farmhouse White, I needed 1 more…and although I thought I had a skein of Graphite, I didn’t so I had to get that too.
Pattern: Flax…sort of. Bodhi’s sweater is a fingering weight version of Flax without the garter on the arms. Pattern coming in the new year!
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in ‘quill’ and ‘nekkid’ (hilarious colour name)
And so, this lovely Santa picture was made. I have a feeling they will hate this ‘matchy’ picture for a few years when they are older, but hopefully they will look back 80 years from now and know that their mummy loved them and thought matching sweaters were hilarious.
