Twin Knitting, Buttons and Borage

29 Jul

I am knitting baby clothes in pairs for our twin Live Wires due next January! Only just able to share this delightful news.:)

Twin cardigans with buttons from the expected babies' Great Great Grandfather

My Father’s Father, my Grandfather,  was a button salesman and I still have cards of his buttons which I have inherited and treasured. I have sewn some of them onto these tiny cardigans which pleases me greatly.

The blue of Borage flowers is gorgeous and really enhances a salad.

Beautiful Borage

    Those little Live Wires will be receiving heirlooms on many levels – they will be lucky to have such a Gran as you!

      Thank you so much, it is very exciting! The only ‘problem’ is that they will be in Barcelona! 🙂
