Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

I Promised!


Finally!  I sewed the buttons on Kid 5’s vest and we did a photo shoot.

The only shirt we could find had bears on it, but it works, and he’s happy.

I love all the color in this vest.  The yarn is Mountain Colors River Twist in the Trout Creek Colorway.  The pattern is Fast Favorite Vest from the Men in Knits book.  If you have men (both big and small) in your home to knit for and you don’t have this book, go buy it.  I’ve used it for numerous projects.

Of course we have to have the cute behind photo, and his is cute!

As you can see, I’ve started my Christmas decorating.  This is our junk tree and it’s in the kitchen.  The adult tree will go in the family room.  That’s my project for the weekend.

Tomorrow we need to finish up our homeschooling for the week and do lots of cooking.  Our youth pastor and his family live next door and they’re coming for dinner.  Our plan is to eat a lot and sit around.  I’m going to knit too!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  1. the vest is adorable and your little guy is a real cutie!

  2. Very handsome little guy in the very attractive vest. That colour was a great choice.

  3. Very GQ young man you’ve got there. I think the bears are the perfect complement to a fantastic vest!

  4. Isn’t he nice looking! And the vest is gorgeous! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  5. Perfect little vest for your perfect little man! Reminds me of when my boys were little.

  6. That’s a most excellent vest!
    I think I need to go see if our library has that book. I’ll then show it to the uber-picky DH to see if he’d wear any of the things in it. (Before I met him, he grew attached to super fine-gauge cashmere sweaters… I can’t compete… I’d have to knit on something like triple 0 or quad 0 needles… unlikely that I’ll get a man-size sweater done on THOSE… even if he is 5’7″..
    but TWO trees???

  7. Cute vest on a cute kid! My plan is to get the house decorated this weekend. If it happens it will be the first time since my oldest was born that I have accomplished this by Dec 1st. I do have that book but I havn’t knit from it, guess I’ll have to pull it out and re look through for hubby projects!

  8. Oh he look so grown up posing with his hands in his pockets. Super cute! I love the vest colors, perfect for fall! Happy Thanksgiving.

  9. I love that vest! The color is wonderful and it is set off by the shirt. And, your son is cute, too!

  10. Gorgeous vest on a handsome model!!! Love the shirt under it too. Your talent just continues!! Happy Thanksgiving! I like your “junk” tree…..i love a tree with a mish mash of ornaments.

  11. Lovely vest and color way. Love his little turtleneck with it.

  12. Oh, I just knew I’d like that yarn even more knit up. He looks very GQ in that.
    And the bears are a perfect touch!
