and now for something completely different...

...we interrupt your regular schedule of cards and ICADs to bring you a tiny knitted sweater:

because we are thrilled to welcome our very first grand-nephew, young hudson hagar, born to our eldest nephew and his wife a couple of weeks ago. of course a guy's very first "welcome to the world" present requires something a bit special in the way of wrapping, so i used eyelet outlet washi tape and baby animal brads to dress up a plain white box and some store bought ribbon. i designed the box to coordinate with the baby card i made for hudson a couple of months ago.

for my fellow knitters out there i should probably mention that this excellent, top-down, no-seams pattern is a free ravelry download called "baby sophisticate" by linden down; i used one supersized skein of barcelona big yarn by loops and threads in a colorway called lapis lazuli. ♥


  1. awwwwwww...what an adorable card, packaging and sweater! Fantastic giftie!
    P.S. The girl just took up knitting this year, I'm going to pass along this post to her :)

  2. Oh WOW you knit too! It’s beautiful and so deserving of the lovely box and baby card. X

  3. Awwww, so much adorableness! Such a special gift. Welcome to the world, Baby Hudson!

  4. Ow my gosh, what an adorable lil sweater. And you picked a perfect skein. Great color. Your wrapping and card are awesomely match. What a fab Great Aunt you are.
