If the Sweater Fits...

Way back when I was pregnant with a mystery baby, my mom knitted the most beautiful sweater. I was so excited to have a baby to wear it, but I had to wait for her to grow into it. Patience. Finally in February, with the sleeves rolled a few times, she was big enough.


Oh, how I loved that sweater. The detailing is amazing, down to the beautiful buttons on the shoulders. And it looked fabulous on her. But before I knew it, the weather was getting warm and it was time to put the sweater away. So sad.

Now that the weather is getting cooler I thought I'd see if it still fits as it still seemed a little big for her at the beginning of the warm weather. And lo and behold, it does!! Hooray!

So, we're going to get a few more months of use out of this fabulous thing before we have to pack it away for good. There's a matching hat that still fits, too.

We couldn't have a been blessed with a more perfect baby--exceeding all I imagined when putting the stitches on the needles. I'm honored to have a post on your blog. And it's such a treat to see her wearing the sweater.
