My mum sent me a package from the UK a couple of weeks ago in which she'd included two sweaters that she'd knitted for my Gregor. She included a note which read "These two jumpers have been finished for ages, I thought I'd best send them before he grows out of them!" Bless her! She does get into the spirit of things!
However, the lovelier of the two sweaters, a grey cable knit one with a 'shawl' type collar, is never in a million years going to fit over his head. The body and arms would fit I'm sure, but without removing his head, there is no way that the sweater would fit him. Such a shame, because it is really nicely knitted and the perfect 'boy' sweater.
However, Leona, my Iplehouse KID Lonnie, decided that she was a bit chilly and would try out the jumper for size. The sleeves are very long on her, but you know what kids are like, they love that 'long arms' look these days! And of course it fits perfectly over her head......seeing as she is so much smaller than Gregor, as is her head!!!
Now, how to tell my mum!!
