It's my mom's 81st birthday today and I think she looks amazing -- especially modeling the Beach Leaf Vest I knit for her. My oldest niece did the crocheted edging. (below is a close up) I'm really proud of her work -- it added the perfect finishing touch. Thanks Cait!
Mom is the one who first taught me to knit and purl when I was just a young girl. She was a patient teacher for this impatient student and I'm sure way back then she would have never imagined I'd get to the place where I could tackle a project like this. It was such a joy to surprise her with the vest.
Happy Birthday, Mom, I love you more than words could say!!
