My sister made this amazing sweater for her son when he was about R's age. It was handed down to us this Spring. Since pulling it out for the fall, R has asked to wear it every single day (you may notice it from posts past). In fact, it's the only way I can get her to come and get dressed. "R, come on over, it's time to get dressed". . . . no response. "You can wear your new sweater!" She comes running. I've asked my sister for the pattern so I can make the next size up in preparation for a growth spurt, but so far, she's not giving. Maybe there's some magic to it she's not quite willing to give up yet.
P.S. R's boy band hair is getting a little out of control these days. E keeps threatening a hair cut, I'm just hoping for the next phase.
P.P.S. yes, that's a balloon she's using for a chair. Do you think that's safe?


  1. Oh my gosh, she is precious. And stylish to boot! The sweater is something that I would, as an adult, wear nearly every day too.

  2. Ok Ok I'll get that pattern in the mail. Now you need to send me that cross stitch book.

    1. Yes! That cross stitch book! I totally forgot about that. Consider it sent!
