On Turning Five

Turning five years old is an important milestone.

You are officially one hand full.

(Or a handfull, depending.)

You can choose the yarn and the pattern for your very own birthday sweater.

You can appreciate the fine arts.

You've also learned to appreciate the casual days.

You can recognize and write your letters.

You already know it's going to look so much cuter on YOU than it does on the hanger.

Pattern: Children's Neckdown Pullover by Knitting Pure and Simple
Yarn: Paton's Fresco, Kiss
Needles: Addi Turbo US#9, 24" circular for the body, and 47" to magic loop the sleeves.
Ribbon: Pink Argyle from Pat Catan's
Recipient: My super-fab-five-year-old niece, Maggie.
Birthday: August 25
Modeled pictures hopefully coming soon. Hope you had a great birthday, Maggie!
