Dressing the Little Man

I love vests on little boys. Seriously love vests. There's no better way to turn a rough and tumble toddler into a stunning charmer than to slip on a sweater vest.

I wanted to knit something special for Benjamin since I had been doing so much knitting for Miriam before she was born. My little man was the object of many hats, mittens, socks, and sweaters while he was an unopinionated infant, but once he reached toddlerhood, his opinions became very strongly against handknits. But, there is one word that fixes all that: Special. Special mittens, Special hat, Special socks. Adding Special as a descriptor equals instant excited doning of the newly knit object.
