Yarn Along: Progress!

I'm reading Emily Climbs, even though Dean is making me suuuuper uncomfy as he bides his time waiting for fourteen year old Emily to come of age.  As my dear friend who recommended the books to me pointed out, L.M. Montgomery understands human nature so well!  His manipulative and overbearing behavior is common even today.  Put in that light, I think I can get past those passages that bother me and just see how true to life that character is.  I do love how Emily becomes indignant whenever he gets possessive of her.
I have made so much progress on Sebastian's baptismal gown.  I finished both sleeves and knit down to his belly.  I couldn't resist trying it on him a couple of days ago.
Speaking of which, here he is in the sweater I made for him to wear home from the hospital.  I couldn't resist pairing it with plaid and posting it for the Outlander KAL on Instagram.  He will probably kilt me when he grows up, but it will be worth it…

oh my goodness, the sweater and kilt combination! I love it!

My in-laws lived in Scotland for awhile, and when they came back, my little nephew wore his kilt *constantly*. This little toddler running around in a kilt - it was adorable.

He is so adorable. You have gotten a lot done on the baptismal gown.

I love L.M. Montgomery. For whatever reason, I always end up read her books over again postpartum. I find them comforting I guess! The kilt look totally put a smile on my face.

WHY HAVE I NEVER THOUGHT TO GET KILTS FOR MY BOY? We've known a couple of adults who wore kilts every day. Utility ones most of the time, then nicer ones for church/special occasions. You'll work your way through Dean, don't worry!
