I is for

Irish Knits.

My mother was a talented knitter.

Of all the things she made--and she made many, many things--I think her (and my) favorite were the Irish knits.

There are probably still people wearing the Irish knit sweaters my Mom made for church raffles. And her cozy Irish knit afghans are most likely still being enjoyed by families.

My Mom is no longer with us, but, I continue to enjoy her Irish knits:







Best of all, some of my Mom's Aran yarn from Ireland is in my stash and her pattern books still inspire.
