A few days ago, I received an email that made me very happy. A lot of my knitting is for gifts, and lately, since I’ve been living away from home (and since the number of my friends strewn across different corners of the globe has increased), I’ve been putting many of those knitted gifts in the mail, hoping they will survive their long journeys, come out at the other end unharmed, and be loved and worn wherever they end up. And I’m told they are. I’m thanked profusely. I’m made to smile. But rarely, rarely do I ever get photos. Until the other day.
Remember the blue Floyd sweater from a while ago? It went to Mateo, who was born in February in Costa Rica. It’s still too big on him, but his Mum says he enjoys the sweater a lot and always falls peacefully asleep when she puts it on. Hehe, if I could make this a magic ingredient of all my baby sweaters, I’m sure I could make a fortune… ;)
Mateo’s Mum kindly allowed me to share these photos with you, and even sent me extra ones to make sure I get good shots! Now that in my book is one amazing new Mum! I hope you like the photos – they’ve sure kept a huge smile on my face for the last few days… :)
Isn’t this boy the most adorable little thing you’ve seen? And there he is, in MY sweater! Don’t wanna sound arrogant, but this must be my proudest knit ever… :)
