My mom made this sweater for herself in the mid- to late-80’s.  A few years ago I noticed she had it in the ‘to be donated’ bag, so I quickly snatched it up.  Something about donating homemade clothing breaks my heart.  Plus, I remember her wearing this sweater when I was little.  In fact, I had a matching pink and blue sweater (also homemade!).  So for a variety of sentimental reasons, I decided to keep it for myself. It hasn’t seen much wear recently, instead the sweater was exiting in my “special clothing” storage box – a place where I put things that I don’t often wear, but want to keep for sentimental reasons.  I am not sure what inspired me to dig out this sweater today, but I am glad I did!
