Easter Sweater

This is a long overdue post that I had forgotten about until I just found the photos on my camera!
We spent Easter here in the dorm and Grant’s dad made the trip out from California to see us.  Will had a lot of fun spending time with his Gramps and we enjoyed celebrating Easter with friends from church.  It was Will’s first Easter complete with egg dyeing (that Gordon and I did most of), an Easter basket and of course, a new knit Easter sweater!

Easter egg dyeing

Will’s Easter basket had eggs filled with puffs and jelly beans, the letters spell his name (I have plans to make the whole alphabet as fridge magnets, but didn’t have strong enough magnets) and stuffed bunny that I had made a few weeks earlier.  Will’s Nai Nai also sent him Grant’s old Beatrix Potter books which were some of my favourites as a kid.

I fiished Will’s Easter sweater over Spring Break and I love how it turned out.  It fit well but with a lot of room to grow.  It’s a little slouchier than I had imagined, but still love it nonetheless.

The pointed hood is definitely my favourite part.  That, and the hand dyed yarn I chose.

Pattern: Wee Austin Hoodie (Pattern is also available in adult sizes: Austin Hoodie)
Yarn: Madelintosh Tosh Merino Light in Betty Draper’s Blues
Size: 9 months
The only thing I am planning to change is the buttons.  They are little trucks and I really like them, but they’re a little heavy for such a lightweight sweater.  I’ll just have to make something else to put them on!
