Before leaving for her trip, my mom finished off and sent out these sweaters (and hats) for R and E. She asked me to take a picture of them wearing them and e-mail it to her at my brother's in NYC so she could print it out before they flew out from there, and so she could have the picture with her.
She taught me to knit when I was little, and I'm sure that her mom or one of her older sisters taught her, too, when she was growing up in Norway.
She's a better knitter than I am, but she says the same about me.
I now have a gallery of her knitting started in the side bar. I'll add other pictures in later. She's made several sweaters for the boys, at least one of which they have outgrown. I'll just have to search through my photos to find some where they are wearing them.
(It took quite a few tries to get a not-too-goofy picture of the two of them together where the sweaters show to advantage. There were cheesy grins, tongues sticking out, spinning around, falling down, and running away.)
