side tracked

it always seems that when i have lots of projects going on.... and deadlines to meet.... i'm launching myself into another!

how cute are these??? my nephew and his wife are anticipating the arrival of twin boys this fall. since i'm the knitting auntie it was only right that these be made. yarn is reynolds -wash day wool- in navy, blue and maize. i found it on sale at village yarn and fiber and knit these using the yarn harlot's pattern from knitting rules. using a size 3 (us) i cast on 95sts and knit away changing yarn every 5 rows. eldest child added the much needed pom pom as a fashion touch.

i'm thinking about sweaters to match?
