Jasper's Wool Stash

I've been meaning to post this for a long time now (like 4 months). He's now grown out of his newborn woolies and in between his smalls and mediums! This guy is growing like crazy. I know my other guys are growing too but it's just not as apparent on a day to day basis. But if our grocery bill is any indication, we are definately a house full of growing boys! I came home from Costco yesterday totally blown away at how much food we go through! They aren't even that big yet...maybe it's the food that's just expensive? Please, someone tell me that's it...Even in the summer when we grow a garden it doesn't seem to slow the spending on groceries. I feel like we just eat our money up! I'm sure in another 10 years I'll be an expert at cooking rice and beans with the occasional 'ramen' surprise to keep from having to re-mortgage our house to keep up our eating habits. Ugh.

Ok, back to the wool are the newborns.

Oh, and that's the little shirt that I dyed and appliqued. This is what he wore home from the hospital. Wow, I'm really late in posting these pictures! He looks nothing like this anymore!

And I had to add a picture of some of the stuff my mom has made for us over the years. She's the official 'bootie-maker':) She also made the adorable bonnet, but unfortunately that hasn't gotten much (any) wear from our boys!

Here is a jumper that I actually made the pattern for. I totally love it, but I actually made it for Noah and then never put the buttons on it until Jasper came along. I figured that I'd better get it done for this one or it would not get worn!

Here are some of his small longies that we are now having to phase out of.

The yellow and green pair were made by my friend Janice who dyed her yarn and made them in Tunisian Crochet. These are amazing!! We wear them all the time...and they fetch compliments all over the place. We love them! Here's her shop.

This pair is my upcycled debut. I bought a bunch of sweaters at the thrift store a few weeks ago and decided to try my hand at a pair of yoga pants. They turned out really cute and fit well, but I'm not sold on the soaker side of things. They don't really do the trick, maybe it's becuase they're too thin. Anyway, I am going to be trying some wool interlock soon (as soon as it arrives!). meanwhile, these are way cute on my little baby-J!
Finally, I do have one pair of medium longies that he's started wearing.  I went through an argyle phase...

I think I'll post later with my sweaters.  This is kind of sobering to look through, I knew I was a knitting addict, but I didn't realize I was THIS addicted!
