The Shrinking Ladybug Sweater Set

Before Claire was born, one of my hubby’s cousins knitted a sweater set for her. By the time Auntie M was done with it, it became a very limited edition, because of the complexity of it. In fact, I think we own the only set! I’m not a knitter, so I can only imagine how tricky a pattern like this is.

It’s beautiful.
It really is a work of art.

In January of 2007, Claire was finally big enough to wear it. It was still a little big on her, but we got some great pictures.

Well, I’m happy to report that it still fits! I think this may be the last season for it, though.

Isn’t it amazing how much she’s grown!? Or, is that sweater set shrinking? Surely that’s gotta be it… ;)
