Anticipation, a simple, versatile v-neck pullover with two options: rolled or ribbed hems. It is knit entirely in the round from the top down. The sleeves and v-neck are picked up and knit in the round as well.
It's sized for children newborn to 12 years, which makes it perfect for everyone. You can head on over to Ravelry to see all the details and the projects from other knitters:
Of course, if you just can't stop yourself, feel free to just buy it now:

All of us together:
And, the whole Evans clan. Since this picture, three babies have been added. It's just a little out of control!
That's right, we've had another! Our sweet little Machen was born 3 weeks ago, and I figure it's time to celebrate. It's been a tough 3 weeks, and I'm just beginning to feel normal, but managing to enjoy this little bundle nonetheless. I'll be back soon with a birth story, I promise.
FYI: Machen is pronounced Maa-ken. It is also the name of a small village in Wales. The very first Evans in my family line was from Machen, as was my great-great Grandma, Sarah Gibb. It is a name that honors two great family lines.
For some reason I think I should start this post with all the excuses why I am a terrible blogger. I want to tell you how busy this year has been; how stressed I've felt constantly since forever ago; how desperately I want the next
She is the sweetest, most wonderful, amazing 9-year-old we've ever met, and we are so lucky to have her as part of our family.

Today I'm sitting and knitting. But, not in the comforts of my home, cozy on a couch. I'm sitting at a cafeteria table in a noisy ski lodge. I'm entertaining Atticus by sending him to and from the garbage can with tiny pieces of paper over and over again. He is entertaining everyone between the garbage can and our table by his cute waddle, only mastered in a full ski suit with winter boots on.
Getting out of the home with four kids, plus all their ski gear, made me promise to sell all the equipment as soon as possible and buy an XBox, but once here, on the snow covered mountain, I understand why my parents did it year after year, and know I will do the same. Eli and C are both, after only a few hours on the bunny hill, cruising with their cousins like they've been doing it all their lives. Si is out with his dad, proud as punch to have mastered the pizza and the French fries. Even Atticus strapped on a pair of skis for a jaunt down the hill.
So, despite the craziness of getting us all put together enough to be here in the first place, and the sacrifice of sitting in the lodge rather than "shredding" the hill myself, I'm glad we're all here, and can't wait for a few years down the road (or maybe a little more than a few) when the whole Wiebe clan can be out there on the hill together.
