I have an Izzy as well she would look so cute in this owl beanie, thanks for posting the pattern, what a beautiful little cherub you have. My Izzy is the only granddaughter, all the rest of our 6 grandchildren are boys - but she holds her own with them even at 15 months old. :)

Well,
Well, Izzy is our only granddaughter of 5 grandchildren. She was born in July last year. Everyone just loves her. She has brought joy to our lives. All the boys ranging in age from 16 to 5 are quite taken with her. Isobel seems to be a popular name just now. Thanks for the nice comment...N
