Wow, I think the second sweater is even prettier than the first one -- but they're both so beautiful it's hard to tell. I love the color, too. Lucky girls.

Give them to them now-- the children are growing bigger every week and they'll have longer to wear their sweet sweaters.

Now, you could make them matching hats, gloves, scarves, summer tops.. of course by then.. they might be sick of that particular color!

Ok! You are right! "Children are growing bigger every week..."!!!

As soon as the Booga Bags are dry...I will go on over and give them the sweaters, their own little Booga Bags...and a big Booga Bag for their Momma (to go with her Central Park Hoodie!)

I'll post photos of the Boogas before gifting them! I kinda tweaked the pattern for the big Booga. I'm also putting a patch pocket, either inside or outside. Anyone care to give me an opinion about the patch pocket? Inside or outside?

The big Booga is a solid green bottom (the leftover yarn from her Central Park Hoodie)...the straps are the same yarn as the CPH...and the rectangular felted piece for the pocket is the solid green. Oh, and the top inch of the Booga is the solid green...but most of the Booga itself is NORO Kureyon, shown below.

Should the pocket be on the outside, stitched into place...or on the inside like cellphone pockets??? More useful if it is inside????

Those jumpers are gorgeous! As for the bag, I think inside pockets are better if it's a pocket without a fastening

As usual your work is superb. They are gorgeous sweaters. I say gift them now so they get as much use from them as they can.

I think you should put a few pockets inside for cell phone and other "stuff". You might want to knit a flower and put it on the outside before you felt it, just to give it a "special" look. I saw one on here that was solid red with a beautiful red trillium flower on the front. It looked wonderful.

I so wish I was not allergic to wool and could knit myself a booga bag, with the pretty flower on the front. Oh well, life sends us all trials and this is one of mine.
