We have a tradition in our family of giving the children one present to open on Christmas Eve, a set of pajamas to wear to bed that night. For the rest of the year, and well as long after that as they fit, they call them Christmas pajamas. I also try to include something a little bit fun. Some years it’s matching doll clothes. This year I decided to knit them each elf hats. The big boys have bells on the end of their hats that jingle when they dance around. I thought that might be a choking hazard for the littlest one, so his simply has a tassel. Honestly his was supposed to have a nice crocheted red trim and a button on neck tie, but I ran out of time! This hat will fit him for quite a long time to come though (It fits me!). The hat is kind of a one-size fits all, that looks a different style on each size head. So I at some point I’ll have to be sure to finish it up properly.
The pajamas are made of a lovely organic color-grown sage jersey (what a find!) with a natural organic ribbing. Iain and Elijah are wearing simple long-johns. For Galen I made a gown with a pair of loose fitting pants underneath.
