Well, guess what? It’s September and I just might actually be prepared this year, thanks to Gina Rockenwagner of Gina Button and herbeautiful handknit baby sweaters. These picture-perfect sweaters are fashioned from softwarm merino wool and the details like the vintage clover button on the teal sweater shown here are exquisite. Plus they’re washable–hooray! Gina even does custom work if you’ve got something particular in mind. These are heirloom quality sweaters, destined to be worn by generations of well-dressed children.
And let’s be honest, they’re a huge improvement over those cutesie reindeer sweaters that end up in some family’s holiday photos. Shudder. –Julie
Since we’ve had children, every year in mid-December, my husband asks me, "Shouldn’t we get a family picture taken for our holiday cards?" And every year, I reply that we should have thought of it in September.
