I first saw the pattern for Milo about two years ago and instantly loved it. My son was 2 at the time and always runs hot, so I rarely knit anything for him that isn't a winter hat, and my daughter, who was born August 30 (was it only 16 days ago?!), wasn't even a thought at the back of my mind yet, so the pattern went un-purchased and un-knit.
Finally buying the pattern this summer, I managed to knit one vest before my little girl was born. This one, knit in Berroco Vintage for ease of washing and its wonderful "squishiness," is the 6-month size. I used the heart cable motif, and look forward to knitting more Milos with other cables: my stash is calling me!
