Nana sent us some last minute sweaters this week, which I think is very, very sweet. Let me just say that my mom can knit like no one else (except for maybe my grandmother): fast and perfect.
This one is so super cute that I really, really hope it fits next year too. Otherwise the seven-year-old will wear it for a couple months (at best) and then we won't see it again for 5 more years. It's nice and long, so I just might get my wish.
The pattern only goes up to size 5 (I think) but Alana (the designer) recommended simply adding length, and it worked beautifully.
