here's my adorable great-niece Tatum (she's on the right--doesn't she remind you of Dora the Explorer?) modeling the bolero jacket I knit for her. Evidently she and her pal are on their way to a swinging disco dance, and she looks ready! The bolero is knit in Debbie Bliss' Cathay yarn, and the pattern is here. This yarn is a real dream to knit! I enjoyed the pattern and thought the color was lovely, and an interesting choice for a child's garment. With Tate's gorgeous coloring, it is a perfect shade! It's super flattering that she chose my sweater to wear, too; she is very fussy about her outfits and Auntie Lowdie feels very special.
