I just couldn't wait for Mother's Day....


So I gifted FKMom with her new Lace and Ribs Tee last night!!



Isn't it a perfect fit and doesn't she look bee-yoo-tee-full in it?

SQUEEEEE!!!!!

Dontcha just love it when handknits come out *exactly* as planned, look fabulous and are super appreciated? :)

ETA: To all those that have asked, yes the sampler is also *my* handiwork!
I used to cross stitch all the time BK (before knitting, hehe) If you click on the pic to embiggen, you'll see my name on the sampler! Thanks for the extra compliments :)

Your Mom looks marvelous, and your sweater is just right.

I'm looking at that magnificent sampler in the background. Is that your Mom's work? The embroiderer of that is to be congratulated!

Your mother does look lovely in her sweater, and the color suits her beautifully. The sampler is also very pretty, but I would expect nothing less from your work. Be well!
