Two boy sweaters done! As predicted the blue sweater was a bit too big and the red a bit too small but the boys should get some wear out of them this winter. I didn't have the opportunity to measure them so we went on size 2T and 5T. Mr. Blue Sweater is growing quickly so his will be perfect next year or later winter. Mr. Red Sweater might get some of the winter out of it but it won't go wasted. My daughter has lots of friends to pass this along to. Next set of sweaters, I won't go by the generic measurements but make a trip to visit and break out the old tape measure. Kept waiting for security in kids clothing stores to come ask me why I was measuring all their sweaters!
Christmas gifts are all made. Once they are wrapped I'll get back to both sweaters - Beadwork and Marina. Very different knits and I swap off to rest the hands.
