Welcome to Pink Saturday. Our lovely hostess is Bev from "How Sweet the Sound". Bev is under the weather this week with gall bladder issues so we send out our best wishes that she is back to normal soon.
About 30 years ago when my daughter was little my Aunt Bev made a sweater for her granddaughter, my cousin Carolyn's daughter. How I loved that sweater. Hers was blue but I always envisioned it in pink. I searched for that pattern for over 30 years. Then one day I found a site on the internet called "knit list". Within two days someone came up with the very Mary Maxim vintage pattern I had been searching for all those years. I took one look at the pattern and panicked. I tried to plead with my aunt to make it one more time but she very wisely told me to at least try it myself. This sweater and I have had many unpleasant conversations with many colorful but unreprintable words. When it was done I felt the most unbelievable sense of pride and accomplishment. Now I have an heirloom for my granddaughter that I made by myself. I will NEVER make this sweater again. My Aunt Bev is a very wise woman and I still love this sweater. And I was right, it is much prettier in pink.
Happy Valentine's Day fellow Pinkies, and Bev get well real soon!
