One of the things I love about knitting is that it can bring you closer to people who don't even knit.
One of my co-workers, the Sports editor, sometimes tells me about his mom's knitting. Mostly, it's that she knits sweaters, quickly.
He asked her to send photos of her latest project, and she sent the sweater, instead.
I'm so glad she did. It is truly lovely. It is knit from the bottom up, with very neat seams. Two fronts, a back, and two sleeves, all in flawless Aran patterning. The button bands are all in ribbing, which looks great even when the buttons are open.
Something to aspire to...
