In this holiday season, we all try to be helpful, right? We try rilly hard to do what we can.
Well, we have a challenge before us: Nicki is overwhelmed with the urge to recreate the sweater her mother made back when her mother [pause for moment of awe] owned a yarn shop here in Nashville. Back in the day when this was a once-in-a-city business. Back when the pioneers of our art form stocked the Bernat, the Pingouin, the Sirdar back when Sirdar was Sirdar. Back when Susan Bates was a real, live woman. Nicki’s mom paved the way, people.
The sweater Nicki wants to recreate is one I’ve never seen before. Never mind a sweater with a Santa on it–I’m talking about a sweater in which you ARE Santa:
Has anyone out there seen a pattern for this? This thing just kills me.
PS Just discovered a pooch version here. Arf! And this one is dangerously close to an actual Santa suit.
