FO: Sailor collar cardigan on my Mom
I finished this sweater for my mom with the help of my neice (age 13) who knit the collar, my sister, who frequently answers my knitting questions over the phone, and many of YOU here on KH! Thanks to all of you who helped me with sizing issues! As you can see, it looks great on my mom.

Here's my mom in the FO standing on their deck in Gig Harbor, WA.

This second picture is (from left) me, my mom, my sister Julie (who gave me lots of phone help) in the background and my neice, Johanna, who knit the collar.

The sweater looks great on your mom! I think it's wonderful that you have other knitters in your family. It must really be fun to show off your projects to one another!

That looks so professional - how lovely to have a family with other knitters to collaborate with! Your mum looks pretty happy with it too!
