Trinket's T Shirt

The only sweater I knitted for Trinket. I downloaded a free pattern and added an intarsia T on the chest, just in case Bucky wanted to steal the sweater.
Trinket had surgery to remove three tumors from his chest, side and leg (cancerous mast cell tumors) in October 1998. After the surgery he was wrapped in gauze around the chest and stomach, with the tumor site shaved clean. He looked pitiful. It took me a good day and half to crank out this sweater to cover up the gauze and later the shaved area. Made him look rather cute if I might say. Trinket was about three years old in the picture, and Bucky about two.

Such a cute picture of the boys :) No gray hair on Bucky. I'm sure Trinket loved his sweater.
