Santa Sweater is out of the head and off the needles

Santa Claus will be surprised when he finds my grandson looking just like him, except a LOT cuter. I had a blast knitting this sweater. I hope he has fun wearing it. I knit it out of Vanna's Choice yarn and used jingle bells for the buttons. It will keep him warm and cute all at the same time.
I'm hoping to get the pattern on my website in the next day or two.

Onepieceknitting Gallery Sweater Photos

I had a customer email me with a suggestion to publish photos of sweaters knit with my patterns. What a GREAT idea! I love it and now need to figure out a way to do it. I think a photo gallery on my blog is the best place since I don't think I can figure out how to put it on my website which is through ZEN cart. I have seen some pictures of sweaters knit with these patterns and they are beautiful. I love the individual touch and uniqueness each sweater has. I always encourage my customers to change something about the pattern to make it theirs. I love to get ideas for my designs from other sweaters, nature, the leaves turing, people at the grocery store wearing great designs. I sometimes follow the sweater pushing the cart around the store studying the colors or design to get a mental picture. I haven't been picked up for stocking yet, but I am always on the lookout. Let me know if you have any ideas or what you think. Sharing is always great, isn't that what we teach our kids when they are young? As always, happy knitting and enjoy this cool weather, it puts the knitting bug right into your . Ideas and thoughts are always welcome.
