Daisy just needed a button

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.
