I did finish a lot of things in 2012, I just didn't have time to post about them. So I'll be doing some wrap-up / catch up posts this week.
I finished this just in time for Isaac to wear for Thanksgiving and birthday celebrations. The first few times I made him wear it he would yell "Ow! Owwie!" One time I gave in and took it off him because he would not settle down. No, he is not allergic to wool. It think it just hurts him to look nice - he cries when I put on his cotton toddler vest that I made him, an acrylic vest his grandma made him, the sailor shirt I made him, and store-bought button down shirts. Tshirts do not cause "owwies" though. Sigh. I've made him wear this sweater many times now and he has finally stopped crying about it.
Above, all dressed up to go to the Walker Art Museum. Below, dressed up to see Santa at his day care holiday program. Santa (mom) gave him lacing cards, woohoo!
