I was talking with a friend the other day about grandmothers knitting and sweaters they give for Christmas. Her comment was, "I loved my grandma, but those things were hideous." Then I related how I always loved the things my grandma knitted for me. I was just thinking about it again recently. I even liked the pink sweater she made, and the tomboy in me normally didn't like pink. Maybe she was just more savvy about what little girls liked then. She made my sister and me these really neat sweatervests that had animals worked in - the face of the animal on the front, with button eyes, and the tail on the back, with little cat tails hanging out, or bunny rabbit cottontails. They were great. Yay for Grandma!

Yay for Grandaunts, too! Grandma made you some nice things, but it was Aunt Ellie who made those wonderful vests. :) It's a good thing your children's other grandmother knits, because needlework seems to have skipped a generation in our family.
