Adoption is a Beautiful Thing

My just-friends sweater has a new home!


My sister Kathy has adopted her! I had a feeling that since this sweater looked small on me, it would probably fit my teeny tiny sister. I was right. It looks really cute on her and even though the sleeves are large for her, I think they look good that way. Stylish.

Kathy, being the kind soul that she is, didn't want to adopt this sweater at first, only because she felt guilty about taking it away from me. It took some convincing and many statements about how the sweater would spend its life folded on a shelf and how that's no life for a sweater. She took it. Yay! I'm so happy that this sweater has a good home where it will be loved and cared for, fed and watered, worn and washed. Makes me all warm and fuzzy.

On our way home from Kathy's house, my boy asked me if I thought she might just be humoring me. Just being nice? (And no . . . I didn't smack him.) Look how happy she looks!



She loves it!

Right? She does . . . doesn't she? Right? Kath?

This Kathy-and-my-handknit photo reminded me of another photo that I keep forgetting to post. Remember I knit a Swiffer cover for my sister? Well, she loves that, too. She said it works perfectly on her new hardwood floors.

Here's the proof.


Ew. It really works.

I LOVE the sweater! And I LOVE your boy, who always comes up with the really good ones, just when you aren't expecting them! And for the record...that is cat fur from my indoor cat on the Swiffer cover...it could be worse! :o)
