First up, a sweater for my son. A simple yoke sweater, pattern from the handy book of sweater patterns, and the color work is as invented by the boy himself (he's 7). I don't like how I did the decreases, so it was a learning sweater, lot of knowledge for next time!


Next, a dress for my daughter! I took the racer back from the sugar plum dress #3, then added a modified hip in cotton skirt to it. Again, things I would do differently, but she loves it, and I did it! :woot:


and just for fun, both together in their hand knits!

They look great and they look like they'll fit them for awhile which is nice!

Your kids are so cute! Your son has some long hair there..his choice? ;)

Oh yeah, he loves his long hair, but then, you should see his daddy ;)

And, yeah, I added a bit to my rough measurements of the kids, as I hate it when they outgrow something before I have the chance to enjoy seeing them wear a few times! :teehee:

Those are some super cute children! Love both the pieces and you did a great job! Love the long hair, reminds me of my teenage years and it is coming back in style again for the young men! :yay: :yay:

Your kids are really cute. Your son's hair reminds me of our hippie days. :-) His design for the yoke of his sweater is cool. I'll bet he is really happy to have been able to add that personal touch. Your daughter looks like a princess in her little dress.

Thanks all! We went camping this past weekend, and both kids had a chance to show them off to extended family too - ds when it was cold, and dd wore her dress (with some sweats and a shirt under it) for the egg hunt Sunday :happydance:
