When scandalized by the amount of trouble they cause as adults, we often look back longingly on how sweet they were as children... thus is my state of mind regarding Lara. She was a very sweet baby, indeed.
Less than three balls of CashSoft DK on size 6 needles, "Ribbed Jacket" from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss. Note that the pattern is written for Aran gauge, so I followed the instructions for the largest size and ended up with a sweater that is approximately the dimensions of a medium size, somewhere between six months and one year, which is precisely what I wanted. Ted models the sweater like a good sport, though it's very much too big for him and the collar has to be folded over like a shawl.
And we have moved on to brighter things: clapotis!
