harper's solstice sweater

i am so smitten with that little boy in this little sweater! and he seems to actually like wearing the sweater- squeee!

i gave him the solstice sweater yesterday evening, one day early, before we went on our family christmas light tour. if you look close at the photos below you will be able to see how sloppy my kitchener stitch is on the hood *sigh*
darned you, kitchener stitch (shaking fist in the air!)

esme's solstice gift is a sewing day with mama where we will finish her doll and they both received new mittens, something we have to continuously replace in our home this time of year.

tonight we will be celebrating the season by visiting santa and one of his reindeer and enjoying the beautiful light display at the local botanical garden with some friends. good times with good folks!
solstice blessings to all!

here are the sweater details ::
the pattern is duck soup. i love this pattern and highly recommend it.
the yarn is peace fleece in the glastnost gold colorway and i knit it on size 9 needles. i did add a few extra increases in the arms to make them a bit more roomy. this is the size 2/3 and it fits my little guy quite well!

Oh, I love this! I've seen the pattern before, but I like it in the larger size better-- and the PF is beautiful! The color is perfect for him. :)
