Potter sweaters for my twins!
These were so fun to make--I've never used tweed yarn before! Loved it. And I'm so pleased with how well they turned out. They did need an extra 2" of length, though...

They are adorable! And I don't know how you do it.....I can hardly stand to think about knitting 2 of the same sock, much less 2 of the same everything!

Love the sweaters, but love their expressions even more. In photo #1 J is the one with the funny expression and in photo #2 A is the one with the funny expression. Bet it's impossible to get both to do the same thing at the same time...you're a saint!
