Something about this sweater

First, there was the sweater in green. She wore it for three days straight. I had to peel it off of her. It would be in the laundry basket awaiting a much needed wash and she would find it. That sweater. Something about it makes her swoon.
Usually she changes her clothes all the time. She averages about three times a day. There are bathing suits paired with leg warmers, skirts under dresses, tutu's with only Cinderella undies peeking through.
Not when she wears the sweater though. That stays on. For a really long time.

She has been asking for something in pink for a while now. Since she is so small I always make her stuff from the stash. I don't know if I have ever had pink yarn in my stash.

We went to the store, on a mission for the perfect shade. Of course we found it.



The details:
Pattern: Girls cap sleeve top, by Soulful Hues.
Yarn: 1 Ball of Cascade super wash, in pink.
I think red will be next.

What a doll! The jeans, the face, the sandals, the sweater! I am so happy that you have a little girl in your stash of babies!

Oh my gosh. You know I think your daughter is adorable? We all do here in cyberworld, for sure! She is just too precious, her little personality shining through in your photos of her, your stories. It's THE perfect shade of pink and a delicious little sweater. With those tiny jeans and flower flip flops, well, as we like to say in my house, "She's the total package!"

It's beautiful. I wonder if it will beat the green sweater's 3 day record!

She is so sweet! Just look at her with her hands in her pockets - the perfect model. I love that she loves her sweaters. And why wouldn't she? So cute.

Katie, your little girlie is such a sweetie pie...with her glowing smile of joy. How flattered you must be that she loves her green sweater so much. Now I am curious about this pretty pink one. Will she still favor the green? I had forgotten about the green one...thanks for reminding me because I remember thinking how I would love to make one for my grandgirlie, Libby.

I can see why she wouldn't want to take it off. How cute. I'm kind of glad to hear that my daughter isn't the only one who goes through several changes of clothes a day, too...

Jessica said...

If I had that sweater I'd never take it off either...though it might take a few more skeins of yarn...
