A Cardi for Grandma

Quick BookMate update: I was contacted again by the person who sells the BookMates. They are still available for purchase at this new website, and I think a few of the BookMate I cover designs are new. (No affiliation, just an interested reader.)

A year later than intended, I presented Grandma with the Cropped Cardigan (see previous post) for her birthday.


She was very pleased with the gift and said that no one had ever given her a handmade sweater before. We all thought it looked nice and fit quite well. Yay!

    Thanks for posting this–I love the photo of her modeling it. It’s a gift that’s nice and well-matched with the recipient! I sure she’ll enjoy telling everyone you made it for her–talent in the family, you know!

    Isn’t it great to see your handknits in action? How great it was for her to get her first handknit from her granddaughter.

    It turned out really beautiful, I can’t imagine that she would be anything but pleased. Good for you for sticking with it and finishing, I’m still working on my lace project.
