Maja in the red sweater

Filed under: Knitting FOs, maja — freeformkatia @ 8:15 am

Sorry this picture is so blurry! I tried to take it before Maja started down the steps.

We had a terrific downpour this morning at about 5am (at which point Richard and I jumped up out of bed and raced around closing windows!) and the weather cooled right down — enough that I had to put a sweater on Maja. Now, this little red sweater is still way too big for Maja, but I knit it when I was pregnant with her, held off until her birthday (April) to give it to her… and well, now (August!) it’s still too big. sigh. It’s been waiting in the wings for sometime now and I keep waiting for an excuse to have her wear it!
It’s a Debbie Bliss pattern and was very easy and quick to knit.

Maja looks good in red. Like her Omi (hi mom!). Maybe she has got some of her Omi’s genes in her afterall… I keep looking for some family resemblence from my side of the gene pool in Maja but have trouble finding it … she’s all Richard’s family from her button nose and dimples down to her toes. :)



  1. I miss rain! From June to Oct, not really a drop. But then, you know what happens after that…

  2. hello Katia,
    I do enjoy jour blog very much. Looking for an XXXX resemblence in Maja – I have my problems. But don´t worry -girls change and after a while they look like their mothers and sometimes they don´t like it!
    greetings from ulla

  3. Ignore Ulla – there is nothing wrong with cute dimples and button noses – :o)

    She will be a good mixture of both families…

    Please give her a cuddle from Aunt Liz xoxo

  4. Hi Liz —

    I don’t think my Tante (Aunt) Ulla’s comment contained any criticsm whatsoever of dimples or button noses. She just stated that she also couldn’t find any XXXX resemblence but, given time, Maja might change (for better or worse! ha ha)

    Have a great afternoon!

  7. Thanks Liz. I got over-protective — it’s the Taurus in me.
