On Saturday I made a little sweater and hat set for my daughter's friends' little stuffed lamb. In case you think I've lost my mind (which actually you'd be right about, but that's beside the point) I am aware that is a picture of a horse. I had this adorable little friend find an animal from among the legions we own who is similar in size to the lamb of hers. This little horse fit the bill and so here he is modeling the purple and pink set.
The hat was knit on size 2 DPNs while the sweater was knit on size 3 needles (I don't have anything smaller in straight needles) using Caron Simply Soft. I just used buttons that I already had. To show how super tiny the hat really is, I took it's picture next to a ruler.
I brought the finished items to church yesterday and was very pleased to find out that the little girl had also brought her lamb, in case I needed it for sizing but not expecting the items to be finished already (she and I had talked about it on Friday). She was so cute and happy and later that night I received the sweetest thank-you email from her. It made me smile.
