This is my oldest son modelling the beautiful cricket jumper his Nan made for him. He's about 18 months in this photo and is almost 18 years now (over 6 foot and definitely can't fit in his Dad's shoes any more!)
The jumper was passed down to his little brother and then to younger cousins so I don't have it any more but I do still have the pattern:
Only a £1, bargain - and I'm guessing she made one of the smallest sizes.
Cable knitting was my Mum's favourite kind of pattern, she always said the first couple of pattern repeats were a bit tricky but once it was set up it was easy and looked more impressive than it was. I think she was being modest.
So today I'm remembering my Mum, Jenny who patiently taught me to knit, picked up my dropped stitches and was endlessly encouraging. x
