a new hooded wool sweater!

I love this sweater. My aunt made it for us. The pattern is a child's hooded tunic from pure and simple. It seems like everyone comments on this sweater, and knitters want to know where to find the pattern. Seems that it isn't sold online, so I went to the Lost Art yarn shop in downtown Traverse City.

This is now the third sweater in this pattern that people have made for us. It's a favorite that will keep coming back in different yarns and sizes, as long as my aunt and other friends keep knitting these incredible gifts for us! I'm eyeing one of Melissa's handspun yarns...

The flannel pants were one of the things I made for christmas from a pattern I made from another pair of pants. They are so fun to make, and they go really quickly.
