When I knit, sometimes I compulsively work out the sizing beforehand with a gauge swatch, and sometimes I just dive in. This sweater is the result of the latter approach. It's a 9-12 month size pattern, but since I used a thicker yarn than was called for, the size morphed to about a 2T. I was hoping for an 18-monther. Oh well. A cautionary tale.

The base of this layout was the iPhone extraction and the Reindeer MultiMedia element. To that I added the “Big” wordArt and there was my cluster. I slid in Artsy Paper #1 (duplicated, on color burn mode at reduced opacity), then pirated a frame from the Artsy Layered Template and layered in another photo. At the end I dropped in a few of the pictorial brushes from the Christmas Nostalgia set--one brown reindeer and a couple of blue swirly brushes, just to pick up on the blue shirt in the framed photo. I also topped the layout with an russet gradient layer at 67% opacity on overlay blend mode.

I never do gauge swatches :) Perhaps it's better this way, it will "fit" for longer. That extraction is awesome - yay iPhone! The crinkly brown background reflects the knitting texture nicely! Adorable photos and great use of the collection
It doesn't matter, oversize is all the rage.
I think Elioth thinks so too, if I'm interpreting his facial expression correctly.
I like your festive background design and its colours, they go perfectly with the jumper.
Plenty of room to grow into! Excellent use of the palette elements. Love the title/cluster and the blended papers in the background give so much texture.
Adorable expression! The sweater will be wonderfully warm. He will grow into it and beyond soon enough! I haven't played much with the iPhone extractions. I should give that one a try!
What a joy he is! Love his big eyes. He'll be wearing the sweater all winter. Gorgeous blending and page!
