Generations of knitters
I did not have time to knit my Hungarian Uncle a scarf for Christmas. Al knew this. On Christmas Eve morning AL, said she wanted to knit him the scarf. By Chirstmas afternoon when he arrived, it was finished. Leftover encore from the reindeer sweater. She knit it length wise.
Uncle was nearly tearful when he opened it. He said no one had knit him anything, since his Mother had years ago. He's wearing it as he headed home after Christmas dinner. Supposedly his sister, Rita, knit a sweater that never was worn. She was very talented and artistic. Uncle says she entered it in a contest or something and it was traveling around the US. Uncle embellishes a bit...but it is fun to know my Aunt was such a good knitter!
