568. Own a handknit sweater

My Story

Completed March 2000

My grandmother is an expert knitter. She makes the most beautiful sweaters, afghans, scarves, hats, mittens, etc. I don’t think I can ever remember her without her knitting needles. It’s definitely something that she’s passionate about.

When I was little, it seems that I had a new sweater to wear about once a year. At the time, I was too young to appreciate it. Then, as I got older (and as the number of my grandmother’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren grew) I stopped getting sweaters. One day I realized that she wasn’t going to be around forever (although I hope she’s around for quite some time to come) and that I should own a sweater. I asked for one for my birthday and got it!
