Whywhywhy that is beautiful. I am so lucky that my DIL has always appreciated my knitting for my grandson. But now the little blighter smile no longer wants to wear it, he's 5. But there are always other babies to knit for.

That's lovelysmile. I've been enjoying knitting for grandchildren - their parents do appreciate them and I'm getting more ambitious! I'd love to try that one, if there's any way I could get the pattern.

My mum had that pattern! It looks lovely.

That looks great whywhy, I also do a lot of knitting and have a regular collection of ancient patterns!

Thank you, I'm really enjoying knitting these little jumpers.

Lovely!
I knitted jumpers for my DC with various patterns on; little trains around the edge, a horse (complete with mane), Postman Pat and his cat etc and even a countryside scene with a small cottage.

DIL liked knitted garments for the DGC too although they are getting too old for them now.

Well done.

My friend's daughter had a baby back in May this year and she asked me to knit some jumpers for him. I was chuffed to bits as I love knitting and my kids (2) never wanted anything for their children. They preferred designer stuff at a daft price whereas my mam always knitted for me and my children and I did as well. So far this is the fourth jumper and I am really pleased with this one. It is from an old pattern which I have had for years.
