I got my package from Mary (my wonderful mother-in-law) yesterday and inside was another knitted sweater. Mary just spoils us with her knitting. I love everything she’s made for us and so I thought that I’d show some of it to you today.

I really wish I had more skill in photography so that I can really show these items off but here you are anyway.

Mary has made soooo much for the kids over the years and as they’ve grown out of the sweaters I decided to pass their blessing onto friends. They’re too nice to be stored away in a box.

Sweaters all

This is everything laid out on my bed.


I started by taking individual photos but there were just too many! As you can see.

This isn’t even everything! She’s made stuff for my friend, neighbour, and mom, too!!

And Mary, bless her heart, periodically sends me my favourite underwear. Sloggis! Not sexy but uber comfortable and no panty lines!

Mary really is THE best mother-in-law in the world. I love her dearly and I’m so fortunate that I can also call her my friend. I’m ashamed to say that I don’t do near enough to show her how much I love and appreciate her – something I must improve.

    Wow! I think “I” love Mary when I look at all those gorgeous knitted items. Such a talented lady and her love for her son and his family shows. I know you know how lucky and fortunate you are. Now. If Mary wants to adopt someone I am available anytime for some of that lovin and pamperin. Um. And Sloggis.

    What a wonderful selection of knitted items she made and sent. You are very lucky to have her and I think she feels pretty lucky to have you here taking care of her boy. She is a wonderful lady and such fun too. You did a wonderful tribute to her.

    What wonderful jumpers! She has a really good tension and an eye for the right button. Generosity and talent- wonderful!
