My adorable nephew!
I can't help it, I think my nephew is sincerely adorable. And luckily for me, my brother indulges me with pictures of him in the things that I knit for him. Evidently, Max loves the sock monkey hat that I made for him, and he gets complimented on it all the time.
I also knitted him an amazing cardigan (if I do say so myself) that Max needed a little time to warm up to, evidently... initially, the phrase, "let's try on your Christmas sweater" struck fear and horror into Max's soul... but now, he asks for it by name, "dozer"! Awwwww!
Sorry, those images are smaller than I'd like, but you get the point. I'm quite pleased with how it came out, and am relieved that Max likes it. I realize that within a couple of years, he's going to think that items knitted by his auntie are 'lame', and a few years after that, he'll be asking for itunes gift cards or a new game for his nintendo ds. But for now, he likes wearing his dozer sweater and his sock monkey hat.
Stay tuned... next month, Mr. Max is visiting the Northeast, and I plan on taking fifty bajillion pictures as usual. I won't lie and say that it is likely that I'll post before then... but who knows - stranger things have happened!
