Newborn christmas sweater

Ho, ho, ho,

it’s Christmas sweater time! Have (ugly) sweater become a tradition within the last years or were they always wearable no matter how ugly? Making such a tiny Christmas sweater is so much fun. I checked pinterest for some inspiration and made my own tree pattern, Now that my son is born I can knit fitting sweaters. The first ones were all too big, at least for the first months. I really enjoy my time right now. The first month of his life I’m staying at home. I don’t get much done but at least some knitting. The timing is perfect now because I can enjoy the Christmas time more than in years.

The book on the picture is from Mauri Kunnas. He made some great children’s books, which I loved as a kid. They were always a part of the holidays. Last year I bought them for myself in a special edition. The three picture books in one book.
