OK, this is one she'll have to grow into, but too small would be worse! This is my grand-niece modeling.
The yarn is Opal and the pattern is from a Debbie Bliss book (Classic Aran Knits for Kids or something like that).

She's a cutie! That sweater is beautiful! I agree.. bigger is way better than too small!

Many thanks for the kind words! It really is sooo much fun to give a gift that is truly special.
Her mom really wants to learn to knit, so I gave her a bit of leftover yarn for practice, a pair of extra needles, a crochet hook, a row counter, and a post-it note that reads "www.knittinghelp.com". I told her that's all she needs! They live in Colorado, so I can't really teach her myself. I did not, however, warn her about the highly addictive aspect of this activity!!
