When I saw this pattern on Ravelry, I knew my daughter would love it. She has been listening to Little House in the Big Woods on cd and looooves to hear about Laura & Mary. I wanted to use some Plymouth Sockotta I've had laying around for ages, which didn't give me quite enough yardage, so I did fewer rows between decrease rows. With hindsight, I should have reduced the lace edging and had more of the body. Oh well! She does indeed love it.
