About two years ago, there was a spate of babies in the land. I knit this little sweater with a certain recipient in mind, but after finishing it and seeing how FREAKIN' ADORABLE it was, I reconsidered. To be frank, I was not sure the intended recipient's mother would appreciate a handknit properly.
So I sent it to my friend Catherine instead, because she rocks, and because I thought it would look awesome on her little boy. In, like, two years, because it came out kinda big, and said little boy is still pretty little.
(I actually knit this pattern twice that summer; I made a version in the Mid Valley Fibers handspun I bought way back when and gifted it to a baby cousin. Sadly, I don't have a picture of that one.)
