This was the baby’s first Christmas outfit that I started making for Galen’s first Christmas, three years ago now. I thought the likelihood that I would have yet another baby that’s around the right age/size come Christmas time was pretty slim (though it has happened 3 times now, and I would have considered that unlikely as well), so it was feeling like now or never on finally finishing it up.
I think this rather stretches the limits on what’s considered a work in progress. I decided that it (only very narrowly) falls into that category due to a small hole under one of the arms that needs to be closed up. And she did already wear it for Christmas Part II with my family last weekend. We tend to spend Christmas day proper in our jammies!
The yarn is Peace Fleece, though I don’t remember which colors any more. Those are green and red stripes down the lower half, in case you can’t tell. This little girl doesn’t sit still very long for pictures these days!
This is one of those pattern that I really wish I had written down as I went along. I think it turned out pretty darn cute. Oh well. Live and learn.
So, so glad to finally get this one out of my “unfinished projects” pile and see it in use!
