It's a family affair...

A few months ago my friend, up-and-coming knitwear designer Stéphanie Voyer (aka Birana), posted something on Twitter about needing a 5-6 year-old little girl to model one of her creations for a new pattern.

I happen to have one of those (to quote the Yarn Harlot, I made her myself with things I found lying around the house, heh), and she's pretty gosh darn cute if I do say so myself. So I contacted her, gave her the "Duh!" speech, and she came over the next weekend.

It's been really difficult keeping these pictures under my hat, let me tell you! But I finally got the OK to publish them on the blog.


The pattern is called Chanelette, a beautiful little jacket inspired by Coco Chanel. Give it a knit! You know you waaaaanna. Just don't ask me not to gush that MY daughter was the model for the pattern if I see it on the streets! Motherly pride, what are ya gonna do, right?

Happy Knitting Everyone!
