And the Winner Is


Honestly, I tried to sew the dinosaurs on.

But they really are too big and too bumpy, and most of all, too heavy. They need something along the order of Lopi doubled to work.

The Tiny Prince is growing, but it will be a couple of years before he can carry the weight of a sweater heavy enough to support those buttons.

(And I have some buttonsaurs that are even bigger.)

So, for the moment, let's stick to the cute little doggies.

I got them at

Their name is Augy. They also come in blue.

And here, looking a bit strangely shaped, is the finished sweater.

It is 2X2 rib, lightly blocked. The hanger is what's making it look so odd. I promise, it's normal-shape.

Yarn is Superwash Worsted. Pattern is Twizzled Ribbed from Kids to Grown-Ups Seamless Sweaters (Rich Designs) also available at

And to recap the other two Christmas Sweaters:

Pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple (neck down, wrap cardigan #263) also available at (do I detect a theme?) for the Daughter In Law in Berroco Ultra Alpaca (50/50 blend of alpaca and wool), color Mahogany Mix from Webs (ha! I got ya!).

For the Older Kid, Jared Flood's Cobblestone Sweater in Filatura Lanarota Puno (100% alpaca) that I bought at Smiley's.

All three sweaters are in the hands of the U.S. Postal Service (whose clerk was having a minor meltdown today, but who could blame him? His computer froze right in the middle of taking my money!). They should be at the Palace of the Tiny Prince before ::sob:: the family leaves to spend Christmas with the other grandparents.

Not fair, is what that is!
