Sugary (Now With Added Sweetness!)

When I knit Sugary, I was still pregnant, and as much as I tried I couldn't even begin to picture the little girl who would eventually wear it, or imagine what she would be like. All I had was excitement over the little life I was growing and the anticipation of meeting her for the first time. I knew she would eventually be able to wear this top, but when? And how would she look in it?

I waited to try it on her for the first time until we were amongst the knitty gals (it seemed only appropriate), and wouldn't you know, it fits!

This makes my heart smile on so many levels. Knitting gifts with friends or family in mind always makes me happy. Seeing the recipient wear or use the items makes me even happier. Knitting a sweater for my own child and then seeing her in it? Well that just bumps up the happiness quotient to an all time high!

Bean, now two months old, is the most scrumptious morsel of sweetness- beyond anything I could have imagined. She brings indescribable amounts of joy to my life...and she looks pretty darned cute in handknits, too!

Thanks Bean, for making mommy's knitting look good. :)
