I was just happily sewing away yesterday when out of the blue, the mailman
delivery the most awewsome surprise to my doorstep! The card from my mom said:
"Happy Easter, Happy Mother's Day, Happy Birthday!
This is what I've been working on when you ask what project I am working on."
You want to see?
It's the beautiful cardigan I picked out the pattern to last summer with my mom.
It's made with a soft, wool blend and easy-care acrilic yarn by Lion Brand Wool-Ease.
My husband said it best as he ran his hand across it's different textures:
"You mom does the most amazing knitting" .
I, of course, was speechless upon unpacking it.
Followed by tears in my eyes as I tried it on, as it felt like a big hug from my mom.
A boost in spirit she knew I needed...like only a mom can know.
Many of you know, I can't knit (I've tried to learn several time throughout my life...maybe we'll try again this summer mom?? A hat pattern maybe??) Anyways, I knew those of you that do knit, would appreciate and be inspired by my mom's work. She said she had so much fun making it, she's making herself one now! And luckily, our Spring weather is still cool enough for me to get a few wears in before temperatures warm up and I have to tuck it away for next Fall.
THANK YOU MOM!!
I love you.
