I come from a long line of crafty women and these beautiful garments were knitted by my grandmother. Sadly, she passed away when I was only three so I don't have a lot of memories of her but I have learned that knitting was a passion of hers. My aunt had been holding on to these baby clothes but I convinced her let me have them to frame.
This is not the best photo but if you look closely you can see how delicate the stitches are. I particularly love that she used a feather and fan pattern on the sweater, a favorite of mine (Check out the feather and fan scarf I made for June here). I'm sorry I never had the chance to learn from her but I'm glad that I have a few pieces of her work to inspire me.
