Beautiful warmth!!

Last night we visited with our friends and
were presented with handknitted sweaters.

Ginette knitted both of these and I
just HAVE to share how
beautiful they are!! 

This is mine.....


The second photo is more 'true' to the colour.

And this is Jacks....




Ginette certainly puts me to shame when it comes to knitting - her attention to detail and willingness to tackle even the most difficult patterns is a testament to her talent.  Not only does she do beautiful work, but she's fast too!!  
Saying 'thank you' for such a labour of love
is simply not enough.
