"Yay! I love giveaways and I love Family Feedbag! What could be better?"

Congratulations, Robin! I'll be e-mailing you soon to get your shipping details for the publishing company. You're getting your very own new copy! Thanks to everyone for entering your names this week.

And now for something completely different. I love making things from scratch both inside and outside the kitchen and I thought I'd share something I've been up to. Knitting is my craft of choice and I just finished making this sweater for my 4-year-old son. I just love how handsome it turned out!


I love knitting and I spend quite a lot of time doing it. I have an argyle vest for Mr. Feedbag on my needles at the moment and I'm about to start an Audrey cardigan by my pal, Jane Richmond. I have the yarn ready to go and I'm excited to get it started!

But I'm not the only one excited about getting a new sweater.


And now back to your regularly scheduled food blogging.

Are you making things from scratch outside the kitchen too? What's your craft of choice? Are you a knitter too?! Leave a comment and tell me all about your hidden talents!

  2. Wow, that is impressive! He looks very handsome. My craft of choice is sewing or crocheting. I wouldn't say I'm great at either but when I have time, I enjoy it!

    You're sweater is so sweet. I wish I was so crafty. I can just imagine Mr. Feedbag striking a pose like the one in the last photo of your toddler. :) Too cute!

    2. I don't know. Is there a technical definition of a toddler? I think I've just been calling him a preschooler since age 3ish, but perhaps the term preschooler captures toddlers as well? Okay, I'm over thinking this.

  6. What pattern is that sweater? It's so nice! He looks so handsome in it!

    Are you on Ravelry? If so, I am knitpurlmama on there!

    Email me what sweater pattern please! I don't ever remember to come back to a read post for replies. Blogger doesn't notify us of replies.

    1. I just improvised this sweater, so there's no pattern per se. I used the ages 4-6 sizing from Joelle Hoverson's Placket-Neck Pullover, and then did garter for the waist band, arm bands, and entire yoke. I'll e-mail this to you too in case you don't get it here! And I'll find you on Ravelry :)
