Sweaters passed down

I remember when I was a little girl my great-grandmother would make me and my brothers sweaters. I also remember loving to wear them. There was simply something about the sweaters being made specially for me that made me so excited to wear them. My mother, the wise woman that she is, decided to save all of those sweaters that were made for my brothers and I.
When I had my little girl, she gave me the ones made for me to pass on.  I have had them in her closet for awhile now, and she has worn some over the years, but over the last few months she has really started to gravitate to them and to chose them herself. She loves that she gets to wear something that was mine when I was her age. She also loves that she is wearing a sweater made by her great-great-grandmother, which she actually thinks about.

Here she is modeling one of her favorites, "the puppy sweater" as she calls it.

I think its wonderful to be able to pass down a treasured item from my childhood to my daughter. Thanks Mom for saving them all these years!

I am so glad that Jaclyn loves the sweaters as much as you did.
