Good looking grandchildren! Perfect models for your beautiful sweaters. :thumbup:

I agree charity knitting is rewarding. It's one way we can help to brighten the lives of those in need, or those who are ill, or the elderly in nursing homes.

Keep up the good work!

OMG They are beautiful. the sweaters and the children . They are so lucky and so are you. My mother used to knit sweaters for her 3 daughters and their husbands and children to match each group . what ever fit their life styles. My husband was a pilot so ours all had clouds and airplane's on them. I eventually learned to fly too. I can't believe I actually flew a single engine plane. 2 seater Both my kids ended up being pilots too. But I still have the kids sweaters and that was 40 years ago. :) :)

I always made them Christmas sweaters but these were made right after 9/11. Funny, but their friends have often borrowed the Christmas sweaters for their kids to wear for their professional holiday pics.

The only amazing thing was that four of them live out of town and I had to guess on sizes. They all turned out fine except for Alex's (top middle) which could have been a little longer.

I used to make matching sweaters for my grandchildren every year but now that I have ten I no longer knit for them :) I stick to charity knitting instead which is so rewarding. I found the pattern on in the internet but can no longer find it.
Just beautiful...
Sweaters too lol...

Several years ago I crocheted a afghan "flag" for my
neices grandsons twin bed. Can not find the picture
but it took me awhile to finish it due to working at that
time. He loved it, his Grandmother would not let him
take it when he moved to another state with his mother.
He will be starting college this fall, years fly by when you
get older. Beautiful job on the sweaters. Beautiful children.

I don't remember which one, but one of the yarn companies had a free sweater pattern that was either this one or a similar one. Might have been Lion Brand. I don't have time to look right now, got to leave in a few minutes, but maybe that will be enough to help you find it.
