2 fos, a sweater and a dress, 5 pics
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!




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!

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!
