A Fair Isle Sweater for Big Sister
I did it! I finally finished the second fair isle sweater for big sister Arden.
Here it is with the smaller version I made for Hadley. I made this one size larger than the pattern was written, which involved a lot of figuring, so I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Don'tcha just love the fair isle part? I wish it didn't go up all funnel-y, but I like it irregardless. It works better on Arden because she actually has a neck.
I staged a mini photo shoot of the girls in their matching sweaters before Hadley completely outgrows hers. You can see she's already testing the buttons...
I like this one - it looks like Hadley is tickling Arden.
Arden's such a nice big sister. She likes holding Hadley and feeding her bottles.
Too bad Hadley was having some trust issues with letting her 2.75 year-old sister hold her!
I can't imagine how professional photographers manage to get two or more little ones with good expressions! Do they swap out the heads in photoshop or something?
So anyway, Arden's sweater should fit her through this season and likely the next, while Hadley's might fit through next week. So sad. On the bright side there'll be more sweaters I had knit for Arden that she will grow into!
