I got to spend a wonderful evening last night with my cousins -- this is my Mom's sister's family, and we're far closer than most cousins, despite the fact that I've spent more than half of my life away from home now. Since I grew up as an only child, my cousins kindly made a pact with me decades ago that we would all be aunts and uncles to each others children, which is a really special thing for me, as I get nieces and a nephew out of this deal.
One of the funniest things about my family is that everyone knits. And I do mean everyone.
This is my Aunt. She knits the amazing Christmas stockings everyone in our family has. Last night, she was working on a wide rib scarf in a perfect shade of pink.
And this is my Uncle Dick, who is currently working on a white zippered cardigan, but is resting on the coverlet he knit for his bed.
Everyone knit squares for his project and he knit most of them and then put everything together with I-cord edging.
