D.D.'s mom just sent me this picture from Florida, where the weather has just gotten cold enough for him to wear his YHK sweater and hat. I am in love! The sweater was a shower present for D.D's mom, when she was expecting his older brother. The gift-giver wanted something for a boy, but she wanted a more sophisticated color palette than baby blues, so we came up with this khaki, with the light blue and khaki buttons.
Normally, I like wacky patterns and colors, but every now and then it's nice to do a simple solid-colored sweater and let the quality of the sweater and the yarn speak for themselves, especially when they're set off by awesome buttons like these (which matched the yarn perfectly). The yarn has a nice heathered tone to it, which is hard to see in the picture, but it adds some visual interest to the sweater.
I don't want to wish more cold weather on Florida, but D.D. does look so great in his little sweater!
