Notes

A little bit of my heritage appreciation. As many Russian children I had a Matryoshka Doll when I was a little girl. I adored everything about it: bright colored shawl (platok), floral dress (sarafan) and, of course, the whole family living inside of little wooden matriarch.
Eventually, I decided to put this doll on the front of my new oversized hi-low sweater. But instead of the sarafan, I dressed her in norwegian sweater. Winter is coming, you know!
I think this pullover will make people smile. It made me for sure!
