An Overload of Sucrose and A Little Knitting

Are you all sick of seeing photos of The Boy yet? Not to worry. This post is REALLY all about knitting. Knitting for The Boy, it's true. But there is knitting content.


How to sell knitting patterns. Lesson 1.


Take one incredibly cute model. (He is incredibly cute. I am not biased.)





Make one Weasley sweater from the Enchanted Knits book and photograph the incredibly cute model wearing it.







Use left over cotton yarn from a maternity sweater his mama wore to knit a Pure and Simple top down raglan cardigan and add a hoodie. Take another photograph with the incredibly cute model. (This also counts as Using Up My Stash!)







Or maybe two photos.





As long as we have the incredibly cute model around anyway, quickly knit up an elf hat (Enchanted Knits, again) with the left over organic cotton used for his special blanket (counting additional brownie points for Using Up My Stash) so the ICM (incredibly cute model) will have warm ears while walking around a beach town. Photograph the ICM. Again.




And again.





Don't you just want to run right out to your local yarn shop and buy Enchanted Knits, Interweave Knits magazines, Pure and Simple baby cardigan patterns and knit up samples for your very own ICM?

I will never get tired of that little model. Too cute. Did you see any whales?

He is definitely an ICM. I just worked out the maths, you have used up all your stash (polish halo please at this point) but have just made the rest of us dash out and buy more... Hmmm. Plus if there's a influx of ICM's we know who the hubby's are gonna blame.
Happy for you to link me on your blog.

Can't get enough of those blue eyes gazing adoringly up at you!! The sweaters and hat are quite nice!!

I don't want the knitting - I want an exact copy of the BOY!
My son got married last summer......and has a very sweet.......... dog.
This is not enough.....
The knit things are nice too - I prefer things that breathe.......!!!

He's so precious. And what a lucky boy to have all that hand knit love.

Lovely knitting. So cute too. Reading what Sara's says about your weather can't imagine he will need them for a while.

I think your ICM is cuter than anything I've got around the house right now :) Excellent use of both knitting patterns and stash yarn (and of available ICM!) :)

I was hoping you would start selling some of your knitting!!! If I was as good as you, I'd knit something for my brand new nephew!
