I finished my first Milo Vest last week and though it is not perfect, I can see why mothers knit for their little ones! It is wonderful to see them wearing something that I made them and have them want to wear it. I originally knitted this vest for Button. Since I was using a worsted weight yarn and size eight needles, I knit an 18 month size and even that was too big! If the vest was for a little girl Button's size, it would have been perfect to wear with a shirt and tights as a little jumper or tunic. Fortunately, I have two other children though and it fits them just as well! Sugar Plum is modelling it is for this post, but Little Man likes to wear it too! I have another Milo on the needles now for Little Man (hopefully!).
LOL, I guess if you always knit for the smallest size, *someone* will fit into it! (I tend to have things come out big too.)
so sweet- I have to start knitting again...maybe I'll start with the dishclothes
That is beautiful!
