Little Yellow Riding Hood

Dadie's yellow sweater 1

Lara is finally big enough to wear this beautiful sweater knitted by her great-grandmother Dadie. I have no idea about the pattern, or actual yarn name, but it is incredibly soft and I love the boucle quality of the stitch. Lara insisted on keeping her hood on the whole time - as would of course befit Little Yellow Riding Hood.

Maybe this will encourage the other knitters in the family to step forward and create... hint, hint :)... or at least teach me how to do it again, since I've entirely forgotten what little I knew about this craft.
