They grow up so fast...

I finished knitting the back of my son's sweater, and laid it out on top of a sweater that he already has.  It looks like they are about the same size, so that's a relief.  I have yet to sort out how to shape the very top for the neck opening, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

With a surprising lack of searching, I dug out the sweater I had knitted for him when I was pregnant. 

It is a little one-piece outfit that  his 3-year-old sister nicknamed "the Bubble Suit", due to the oversized bottom half.  (Diapers were a lot bigger back then!)  The pattern was pretty simple, just plain knit stitches with alternating stripes of yellow and white:

I couldn't help but compare today's sweater with yesterday's "bubble suit"
I guess my son really has grown a bit since I last knit him a sweater. 

In my defense, underneath the sweater in the photo is a well-loved Harry Potter quilt that I made for Sonnyboy when he was younger, so it's not that he's been forgotten in the handmade department.

  1. Bubble suit is just the cutest although son may not think so! At least he is still asking you to knit for him :-)

  2. Love the baby sweater/bubble suit! It's an understatement to say he's grown! I think your sweater came out really nice. I'm sure your son will love it!!

  3. The bubble suit is sooo cute!! You are making great progress on the new sweater. You will be in search for another "long term" project in no time.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog! I came to read some of yours. This "bubble suit" is so adorable. Did he wear it? It would be so cute to see a picture of him in it. I don't knit, but I have in the past. (Let's just say that yarn and I don't get along, however, I love all the different fibers and textures etc.) Aloha!
