Sweaters For Christmas

Don't forget my -  
 We're within days of the November draw

For the first few years of our married life, the Missus knit me a sweater/pullover each Christmas.  Of course that was back when sweaters were in style for men (remember the nineties with those big warm woolies).  She was always most creative in her designs, and although I knew there would be a new pullover under the tree, it was always a creative surprise Christmas morning.

Looking back, I'm not sure where she found the time, when I was not home, but I did work shift work at the point, so she must have kept those knitting needles spinning on the nights that I was gone.

It is kind of a shame, that these are not really in style anymore, but I thought as the yuletide season approaches I would show you some of her handiwork.  Christmas is a time of great nostalgia for me anyway, as you will see in the next few weeks.

Musings and meanderings from the Musical Gardener.


  1. And she knits backwards . . . fast! I asked her why she knitted that way, and it was because she learned to knit watching Mom. She replicated the motion she saw from the vantage point of being in front.

  2. They are beautiful..she is very talented!! :)

  3. She's a talented knitter! Love that Fair Isle. ANd it reminds me that I haven't knit my poor hubby a sweater in seven years. Time to get on that!
