One of my Aunt's is a wonderful knitter. A while ago, she posted a blog about all of the baby sweaters she had in her stash of finished items !!! I thought they were adorable, and had great hopes of receiving one of these beautifully stitched handknit sweaters for our baby ! When the time to open gifts at my baby shower came, I grabbed hers first. I closed my eyes and asked the gift gods to place a lovely hand-knit baby sweater inside. They must have heard me...because a gorgeous varigated light and dark pink baby cardigan was what I saw when I opened the bag. My heart fluttered a few extra times and everyone oo'd and aah'd over the beautiful handknit sweater. It is definitely an item we will treasure and keep for years to come.
My mom gifted Robert and I this beautiful set, also made by my great grandma Olson. It was a set that my mom actually wore when she was a baby !!! The condition it was kept in is stunning. I am so happy that it was so well taken care of and that we are now able to use it on our baby !
