This sweater has been in the works for some time now. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for my truck-obsessed toddler, but obviously that didn’t happen! The delay was due to the fact that I needed to learn a knitting technique called intarsia. It took me forever to carve out the time to take a private lesson.
I go through extreme phases with my crafting- this winter, I couldn’t put down the knitting needles. Now that we are on the verge of spring, I can feel my enthusiasm for knitting waning. Perhaps I’ll get going on the sewing projects I have building up in my new studio space! One thing I won’t be doing anytime soon- knitting Vijay another sweater.
He wore it once (for these photos), and I had to bribe him into it with a cookie. He refuses to wear it again, and every time I pull it out of the drawer he runs from the room yelling, “NO woo-woo.” Which is his way of saying, “No fire engine.” Do you think he knows how badly I want him to wear it, and he just wants to toy with my emotions? Is a 2 year-old capable of thinking along those lines? *sigh* I guess I’ll just have to wait until sweet Vik is big enough, and I’ll make him wear it. Surely he won’t put up such a fight, right?
