A little tribute to Jenny part 3

February 7th was my Mum's birthday and so each year I share a photo of something she made as a little tribute to her and her crafting skills.
This year's treat for your eyes is another awesome photo of me when I was younger. For some reason I appear to be strangling the cat but as this cat lived a long and healthy life I'm sure that's not what is happening here! 
The cardigan I'm wearing was knitted for me by my Mum, I remember it well. It was a long length, with a bit of a collar which you can just about make out in the photo. I'm guessing this photo is early 80's probably 1982/3, those glasses give me a bit of a "Harry Potter" look don't they!
The cute thing is that I think Mum had one of these cardigans too, I'm sure we had matching ones even though I've not been able to find any photos of us wearing them together.
So today I'm remembered my Mum and her brilliant knitting skills.

    1. I think you are being kind, but thanks! I loved that cardie, I think I may have the pattern somewhere so maybe one day I'll make myself another.

  3. That's a lovely cardi. My mum and I had matching boiler suits, she called them something else though (flying suits??). It would have been about 1985. Hoping they don't make a comeback!

    1. I remember flying suits, they were a pain when you needed the loo as you had to take the whole thing off! I'm in 2 minds about matching outfits, as a little kid I loved it but when I see it on other people I'm thinking "hummm!"
