My baby sis had her baby. She had a darling little baby boy. I'd hold it against her, not having a girl and all, but I'd be a hypocrite considering how many baby boys I had and love dearly.
So, instead of frills and ruffles and flowers............ I made a fisherman's cable knit sweater for baby Will. I figured I'd make it big enough he can wear it this winter. That was until my baby sis told me how much my nephew weighs already! He's very petite and tiny with all of his sumo chub, chins, rolls, and deliciousness.
I asked my baby sis what in the world she was feeding my nephew and she told me she has him on a strict diet of pure cream!
I got the pattern for this sweater out of the, 60 Quick Baby Knits book and used Plymouth Encore DK Yarn in a charcoal grey color.
Don't worry Alex....... I've not forgotten your baby!
My family is having babies way too fast for my knitting fingers to keep up!!!
