There is no doubt about it. My mother and aunt are the real knitters in the family. I recently spent some time visiting my mom and took these pictures of her wearing some of their handiwork. The multi-colored sweater was knit by my aunt Jean who lives in England (where virtually all of my mother's family still live). The green sweater was knit by my Mother who lives in Santa Barbara, California, where I was fortunate enough to grow up. I wish you could see the finishing work - it is just amazing. Oh, did I mention my Mom loves her garden - I wish I had inherited her green thumb!
