These are more photos taken in Hunt Park, Ann Arbor, Michigan, one of the final stops on our Michigan road trip a few weeks ago. We started in Mackinaw City, visited Mackinac Island and the Upper Peninsula, then made our way back down to a yarn mill in Frankenmuth, and finally hung out in Ann Arbor for a few days, drinking lots of coffee and eating Japanese food.

I love these photos of my boy, his toothy smile, and of course how sweet he looks in his mama-made cardigan. Gramps is a timeless sweater, and that shawl collar keeps my boy cozy. When the wind picks up, we flip up the collar to keep his neck extra warm. We've been rolling up the cuffs this fall, which I think means he'll be able to wear it again next year. And after that? I'll just have to knit another one.

P.S. My hat is Snowflinga, a fun knit and one of my favorite knits to wear. It was designed by Jenny Gordy, whose simple aesthetic I just love. Did you see Joanna's post about her beauty uniform


  1. Your boy is so adorable! He looks very cute in his grams cardigan. Gorgeous photos!

  2. Here here on Gramps. Three off my needles and always eager to make a 4th! Your family is adorable!

  3. He's gotten so big! That hair and darling smile just made me smile.

  4. Perfect kid knit, tough, warm and very sweet.

  5. The cardigan is adorable! I love the autumn colors, splendid.

  6. The Gramps looks so adorable on him!
    And what a small world. I've been to Frankenmuth, MI. It was 10 years ago. And, well, technically I shouldn't say that I've been there--it was one of those 'drive to MI, attend my cousin's wedding, drive home' sort of trips. Now I feel like going back! You all look like you were cozy on the trip and had the perfect autumnal backdrop. :)
