its quite sad really, I found this sweater while cleaning up and realized all it needed was a button. I knit it ages ago, (2005) for my ex-sil’s baby.
But it didn’t quite make it to her. I couldn’t gift this sweater away, because at the time I finished it I wasn’t quite proud of my garment knitting skills and ended up buying her a store bought gift instead.
Its a little small on Kailey. But I’m going to pretend they’re quarter length sleeves. Maybe I’ll add some ribbon cuffs to add a bit of length.
But now daisy has a button and all’s good.

As ya’ll are reading this I’m driving my way to Wilkes barre PA to meet my mom and my niece. So much for not driving a lot this summer.
That’s cute and it’s happened to me too…funny how that happens…ciao
I hate to say it, but I have to: That is just cute as a button! Absolutely darling!
