I liked the fact that it was a bit special, and the animal pattern just took me by the heart. It looked great and I knew that it would be funny to knit.
So I got the pattern and the yarn, made it and Emil wore it as long as he could fit into it. Later on my sister's girl Emma borrowed it and lately it has been used by a nephew of ours.
Actually I had completely forgotten about it for a while, but when we got it back the other day, I remembered how Emil looked in it with his little fat cheeks in the hooded cardigan.
Now I think that I will try to find the pattern. Maybe I feel like knitting it again sometime in the future...
