A little Tribute to Jenny

My Mum, Jenny loved to bake, knit and sew. She could actually do lots more than that, of course, but they were the things she loved. February 7th was her birthday so today I'm sharing something lovely that she made quite a few years ago.
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
