My son phoned me today and wished me Happy Mother´s Day. I was taken by surprise because we have never celebrated that day in our family. However, he called me to thank me for the hooded jacket, I had just finished for his baby. I knit one before the baby was born- 8 months ago. The pattern is from 1940. The little girl was wearing the jacket on the way home from hospital and has worn it every day since. She is now 7 months old and needed a new jacket. This time the parents chose the color, a vintage pewter, and I chose among a million, four square wooden buttons. In stead of button holes I made I- cords to the young parent´s entire satisfaction.
I found the hanger at our local flee market and saved it from destruction.
