I was right - the green vest is WAY cuter on a live human baby. You can see the post here from last August where I blogged about making this vest. At the time the newel post did a fine job standing in for our small person while I was attempting to knit away my anxiousness as we waited to find out who our little one was (or indeed if there was even a little one out there for us) but it's just so much better now that I've got Adeline to model! David thinks sweater vests are dorky, even on children, but I think they're totally awesome, and will be knitting more. This one is already a wee bit tight, but it's so cozy and Adeline likes to pat herself when she's wearing it, so she must like it!
