sweaters

Did you know my mom is a knitter? She's made us several sweaters in the past 10 years. This Christmas she made one for Henry and one for Luke. Aren't they gorgeous?

This one for Henry is the same pattern she made for Jack and Sam and several other grandkids. (I should dig up those photos ...) How many of these have you made Mom?



This one for Luke looks very bright red, but in real life it's a more normal red. Luke requested red when my mom asked him if he wanted one, but when he got this Christmas morning he refused to try it on. I had to bribe him with candy to take these photos and he hasn't put it on since. Hopefully it will get worn soon!




Thanks Mom! I love them!

Thanks Leigh. I think that Charlie's sweater will be the 17th gc sweater.

I'm glad that you appreciate them; it makes it even more worth while

BTW Luke's sweater looks very nice on him.

Callie looked at Luke's last picture and said "happy". If she could speak the words I'm sure she'd tell Luke that he looks great in that sweater.

I just have to say Paula you and your daughters are amazing. These sweaters are beautiful. All of you are so talented and do such quality work. When Sam was a little guy my Grandma mailed me a sweater my Dad and his brothers had worn. I hope these sweaters have such a long life, they are so nice, even from just a picture I can see that.

I think the sweater looks SO cute on luke. I wish I could convince him that it is heart melting and he could get anything he wanted from me if he asked me while wearing that sweater and smiling just like the picture . . .
