I'll start this post with the admission that I have a gigantic lump in my throat as the very professional photographs were taken by my sister and have come as a Big suprise to me.
My creative passion is knitting and I love knitting for my family and friends. I do have to say though, that I get super pleasure in knitting for my sister. I think part of the reason for this is that she has such a good eye for detail and will say something like "I like this but could you just ...."
When I last saw Jane I had bought yarn to knit up for her but decided to have her choose what she would like. I'm so pleased I did that because the fichu she chose was a big suprise and I wasn't thinking of pearls on a white cardigan.
I had so much fun knitting these gifts for Jane .... She's my best friend as well as my favourite (only) sister and I was able to put a mountain of love into each stitch for her to keep with her when living so far away.
Thank you for the photographs treasure and for making this blog look so lovely.
