I was reading a post of Kate’s the other day, and it reminded me of when my own were small people.
I remember sewing a stuffed brontosaurus and stegosaurus. The stegosaurus was especially fun because of the upright scales on the back. I probably have pictures somewhere, but it was a long time ago.
I apparently did not keep, or more likely passed along, most of the things I knit for the small ones. I do have a simple sweater I made for Miss B.
I remember her hopping out of the car one evening when she was three, wearing this sweater. She turned and said, “My, but it’s chilly out.” THREE! I couldn’t think of anything equally sophisticated and simply said, “Yes. It is.” blink blink
Oh, that child! I have been running to catch up since the day she was born.
And to prove that Kate is right about ALL small people liking dinosaurs (what’s not to like?), here is a dress Miss B wore 26 years ago every time it was clean and cool enough.
Small things are easy knits — except when you start four or five times. And we’ve all been there!
