Winter Is Prime-Time For Heirloom Sweaters

This Cozy Boy Is a Sugarbaby!

There are few things sweeter than a family heirloom! Elka Karl shared this photo and anecdote with us in our Sugarbabies group.

This little knit sweater was a hand-me-down from my little guys' 8-year-old twin auntie and uncle, and I love, love, love it. It was made by a lady in my grandma's church for a craft fair (that's a lot of midwestern sweetness right there), and my grandma bought if originally for the twins. Uli's finally fitting into it, and I love it. The genius about the design is that it zips all the way down the back. The zipper starts at the tip of the hood, and goes down to the bottom of the hem. It looks a little silly from the back, but considering how much the little dude hates getting dressed, I'm willing to compromise on the back view for on-and-off ease. It's so simple to pop it on and off. I need to get more of these made in bigger sizes. Now, if I could just go raid some midwestern church craft fairs!

We love precious pictures and can't wait to see more. Share your cute snapshots of your little one in our Sugarbabies group. Your little darling could be featured on the site.
