Old sweater

My grandmother Jane sent this sweater, hat and tiny mittens to me when Nonie was wee.  Gran made them for my father when he was a little guy.  He is now sixty. Gotta love the lifespan of wool.    Somehow they never seemed quite to fit Nonie but they are perfect for Eoghan.  I wish I'd gotten a photo of the mittens for you, complete with little thumbs.  Also I am determined to figure out a pattern for that hat.  I know some baby friends who need just such a hat.

    We love and miss your smiling face and creative mind. We miss your babies and can't wait to see you soon! The old sweater story is what motivates me to create, so thank you for sharing! Much love from Colorado!!
