Cath your entry was chosen to win the $50 voucher for the fabulous store Lovingly.
Cath’s response was: I started knitting a hooded jacket for my first daughter when she was about one. I finished it when she was about two. It was a labour of love – my hands, my shoulders and my arms ached with almost every stitch. I should have stopped, but my desire to knit something for my child was so strong, particularly when I looked at photos of myself in knitted jumpers that my own mother had made for me. My daughter finally wore the jacket in the winter that she was two and a half. It sadly didn’t fit for long. She had grown more and more excited by each row that I added, and even chose the ladybird button that graced the neckline just below the hood. I can’t bear the thought of passing it on, so it will be carefully packed away, in the little dusty box in the top of the cupboard, waiting for the next little family member to wear it one day.
