A Keepsake for the Little One

Another precious addition to the family has arrived and I wanted to make him something really special. Shhh. Don't tell him about the photo. I still have to wash and block this. A heritage sweater in Pan-African colors, with an Africa intarsia on the back. Wooden buttons from M&J Trimmings in Manhattan. The Frog Tree yarn is like buttah! 100% merino wool. Yup, I'm doing a test swatch before the real thing hits water!
Confession, this is gift attempt number two. The first was a pant and sweater. Cousin Randall, Jr. was growing too fast for my knitting skills. So no time to waste. I'm signing off to launder now.
