#1175 Mum knitted me a sweater


Mum knitted me a sweater. It took her three months. On and off. Lots of measuring, remeasuring, tinkering, pattern changing, unwinding and reknitting. I'm a fussy customer. The lion's share was already done by the time I got to Christchurch this weekend - arms, front and back, but the tricky stuff - the multi-coloured vee, ironing out the seams and sewing it all together were done on Sunday. It's navy blue with a cream and pale blue stripe detail at the neck. Made to measure knitwear. How we do.

THANKS MUM!

I LIKE YOU!

Can I borrow your Mum? She sounds rather talented and like she'd want to make me something too.

A+ for your sweater

I think knitting seems to skip generations. I dont knit, mum does, gran didnt but her mum did ...
