Henry's Qudditch Sweater

Henry doesn't usually ask for things, probably just scared of his mom. I knitted him a few sweaters when he was little before he had opinions about choice of clothing. As all big boys, now he lives in T shirts and shorts, sweaters are for keeping the dresser warm. One day we were at the library and I showed him Charmed Knits. He really wanted the Quidditch Sweater, like Can-I-have-it-next-Tuesday kind of want. He had to wait couple of weeks till I got the yarn from The Knitting Room during the shop hop. It's my first time to decide on a project based on an actual pattern, walked into a yarn shop to buy the yarn specified in the pattern, and cast on the same day. This picture was taken last week, the front is done since then and there are couple of inches on the back as well.

I love that line: sweaters are for keeping the dresser warm. :)

I am happy for you that your little (I'm sorry! BIG!) guy wants you to make him a sweater!

You are so funny. Can't wait to see the sweater - it will be just in time for the film version of Book 6.

PS: suspicious post just above mine, LOL.

Sweaters keep dressers and hangers warm. Wow to actually have a pattern in hand then go buy the yarn. What a strange concept?
