Ten

My number 2 boy turned 10 (last month). I think you can tell from his expression that he's a pretty funny guy. I think he might find a career as noise effects guy if that job description doesn't die out completely in this digital age.


So I made the expected birthday shirt. I tried to do something interesting by using letters this time. Of course he asked me, "Why didn't you use Roman Numerals?"

This pattern is from Ottobre 3-2011-24 and is intended to be slim-fitting. It is certainly slim-fitting! I normally slim his shirts by two sizes, but this one I traced as is. Good thing I didn't alter it.

I think it fits really well and the sleeve and neck bindings are a nice step up from standard t-shirt hems.

  1. LOL @ the Roman numeral comment - that is something my ten year old son would say!

  6. Happy Birthday to the 10 year old. I am always so impressed with your knits. Do you use a coverstitch machine?

  7. Sigrid - I do use a coverstitch (and serger). My pre-coverstitch twin-needle attempts weren't very good, but a lot of people seem to have found a workable technique.
