I Have A Little Bit

of what you call a


Ok, well not really. I did this on purpose. It's the MinnowKnits Dutch Girl pattern and it's awesome. But it only goes up to a 4 year size. Dudette is 5 and I wanted her to be able to wear it for a bit. So I threw caution to the wind and knit this bad boy up on size 11 needles when the pattern called for 10 1/2. As you can see, it's quite large. But Dudette loves it and as she pointed out, she'll get a good couple years out of it. God bless the thought process of my baby.

I used some Bulky Lamb's Pride I had in my stash for this one and completed it with a gorgeous button Sue gifted me. That she made all by herself. I couldn't make this sweater any more special now if I tried.

Fabulous!!! I love the button and wonder, how does one make a button? I love the shrug, can you share the pattern? And your model...she's precious!

Doing some blog walking this am, have forgotten how I got here...I do that often when I'm having fun exploring.

Stop in for a visit, welcome mats always out.

Have a great day

Such a beautiful button! And the sweater is adorable! It's only a little big...and she'll grow into it. Just means she wears it longer than planed, right?? ;)
