I reckon I watered her well this summer while the sunshine and good brown earth gave her lots of vitamins, because my little girl sprouted up so much this past season. And that is a good thing, I keep telling myself when I pause in the wonderment of how this could possibly happen to my chubby little baby girl who I thought just learned to walk not very long ago.
And so during the summer, I set directly to the task of making her a larger milo vest. Her purple lavender and violets milo from 2012 was worn nearly every day during the cold months for the last 2 years, so I just upgraded to a size 6-8. It is roomy and boxy, and quite right for layering up while playing outdoors in the cool autumn mists.
I remember reading so much about the milo vest by georgie hallam...it seems I encountered one everytime I peeked in on ravelry. And after that first vest a few years ago, I understood what a versatile and well-fitted woollen it is. There have been many milos that have come and gone from my needles, and I seem to like a little cableing with them. For this georgia rose (named for the colourway of the peace fleece yarn), I tried a few cable hearts, but I think I like the solid panel of them best.
And my sweet summer sunshine? Well, she is quite happy with her milo I think...she is rather easy to please.
Now, I just may have to hide that watering can of mine...I want to press pause on all this growing business and savour my girl at this stage a while longer.
