Great story, great sweater and you're a great friend! =)

earthchick

Oh. My. What a sweater. What a great friend. And, of course, what a super model.

Love the sweet strawberry-wear as well. Well done, all the way around!

Pat

Beautiful, beautiful Trellis! and I loved the story that goes with it - Al and baby are fortunate to have you for a friend!

Kirsten

I think you need to knit one for Little Sir (bigger of course). He looks dashing in it!
What a lovely gift for your dear friend.

Kim U

What a cute sweater, and a generous gift for your friend!

Allegra

Trellis looks great! I enjoyed reading your story, and despite the fact that the sweater is a bit small for Little Sir, he looks adorable in it!

Marie

Hurray, you made it! The sweater is adorable! Such a classy look with the white yarn and dark brown buttons. Little Sir is a brilliant model, as usual. :)
(I'm still giggling at the baby's expression in the last photo. She looks so affronted! Hee!)

parikha

aww, how cute! trellis is such a classic--one that al's peanut can easily hand down to future siblings (if there are any).

is it totally dorky that every time i see this sweater, it makes me think of DNA?

Ashley

You are a champ for finishing that thing--but Al sounds like a friend who's worth it!

Brenda

Trellis turned out fantastic! I'm sure Al was delighted. You are a wonderful friend.

Little Sir, of course, is a perfect sweater model! No doubt happy because he is on the deck and not the grass.

I'm glad you finally got some sleep.

Barb

Little Sir is just the stylin' young man as charming model. Al's baby is so lucky to have such a thoughtful and talented aunty:)

Kara

Oh my, you are a good knitter friend. That sweater is totally adorable. You can totally girl it up with some pink. All the late nights were worth it.

Beth

It isn't often in our adult lives that we meet a deep friend. How wonderful that you could knit this beautiful sweater for Al's new baby! She will always remember it.

The sweater and the model are both beautiful. Good job on both!

Johanna

Great story. Great sweater. Great model!

Ambrrr

Trellis = awesome, Little Sir + Trellis = adorable! Perhaps Al won't mind (a few months down the road) sharing a few pics of her little lady and her neat sweater?

Kristy

That's a great story! I like it when I can remember what a friend wants and surprise them with it months later :) The sweater looks beautiful, and so cute on your son!

jen

Beautiful! I love the story of your friendship. It's so lovely to have such a good friend, isn't it? Hooray for you for honoring her with a handknit.

I just love that it's being modelled by my favourite little boy!

Karma

Little Sir is so photogenic and quite a handsome model of mama's handknits! I think he might need a Trellis of his own, maybe in a different color. And the new baby is so precious...

Felicia

Little Sir looks awesome in that cardi!

Theresa

That is a super story. It's a wonderful story of friendship. And knitting. And the sweater came out great - I love the dark buttons.

tiennie

I loved this post and present! Both are fantastic! And Little Sir? What a heartbreaker!
