NOT Made in China
This adorable sweater was given to me by my husband's mother. She said it was worn by my husband when he was a baby. While cleaning out the attic, she found it right before Jude was born. My husband's grandmother, who passed away last year, knit it from an old sweater that my husband's father owned! Jude's great grandmother was very talented and very thrifty- traits that were definitely passed on to my husband's father. She never used a pattern or guide, but look at how great this sweater turned out! I have a few other items that my husband wore when he was a baby and they are so special to use with our children. I hope I can be that organized to keep a few special items to pass on to my grandchildren. Maybe this sweater will be worn by the fourth generation of Harkins one day.
