Thankfully, I never had an Aunt Debbie that was into knitting, to make me dread opening presents every year. But I did have an Aunt Harriet who sent me savings bonds for college for every holiday. Nothing like being eight years old and being given something entirely utilitarian that I would have to wait until I was 18 to even use. Then there was Aunt Mildred (who used the name Margaret) that I had only met once. She thought trendy white patent leather go go boots would be perfect for me. I don't know why. So this design is dedicated to every child who ever had a relative that did not really know them, so sent presents based on what they thought the child should be like. And it is especially dedicated to those children (and even teens and adults) who got hand knit sweaters that didn't fit, mis-matched their personalities, or were of questionable taste.

LOL! Ha-ha-ha...Love the story, maybe even more than the sweaters! Truth be told, I grew up with the custom that hand-made gifts were the best and to be cherished. My husband's family...not so much. I have always put so much time into making gifts for family, starting in Sept, really trying to come up with unique ideas. infusing all with love! 3 years ago, I had no time and extra cash, so instead of making, I bought all the girls in his family Vera Bradley Bags, and apologized and felt terrible that there was no love or effort put into the gifts. To my horror, darn if they didn't all call and say, 'Kelly, you gave such wonderful gifts this year, what's different?" Commercialism...gotta love it!...Guess who will never sweat over making gifts for hubby's family ever again?!!! Big lesson that took only 14 years of marriage to figure out?!?!?!

Yep, still looked like a top 10 winner when I voted today. I watch for your work combining your unique,expressive characters with your equally unique paisley flair completing the design. I love to back a winner !
All adorable !....... Great design, with nice choice of colors !
hahaha - those are great terrible sweaters! I love the one with all the pockets.
My grandma sent us lovely sweaters every year. Until the one year we depended on it and opened our presents from her on Christmas eve so we could wear those sweaters to church... and that year she gave us T-shirt-dress nightgowns with puffy paint college logos on them! Ah yes. Fond painful memories, you've captured them well.
Ha!! Too funny.....we've all been there!
