The last time I knitted a sweater was for my 13 year old neice when she was 3! I had made a couple for myself before that. And then I swore to myself, and made a pact with my mom that if we ever talked about knitting a sweater again we would hope the other would talk some sense into us so that we wouldn't actually try that again.
So I didn't tell her this time. And I found myself a good old vintage crochet sweater pattern for kids on etsy. And I took it one peice at a time. Enjoying the fact that I was making a sweater for my own daughter, one stitch at a time.
And she loves it! And I love it! And it fit just right!
