Christmas knits old and new

Merry Christmas Friends!

I hope everyone had a very Merry day!
Libby made a cameo appearance on my latest 
YouTube video.  

She wore her Christmas sweater I finished for her.  She also wore it on Christmas Eve and that made my heart happy!

I'm wearing a Christmas sweater I made back in 1997!!!  It's one of the only sweaters I saved as I tend to give away sweaters I don't wear.  I haven't worn this sweater for at least 20 years.  That sounds crazy. I'm thrilled that I saved it.

  2. Hi Leslie. I adore your 20 year old reindeer cardi. Any chance you still have the pattern? Could I please buy a copy of it? It’s fabulous and I would adore knitting it. Sherri
