This was the first garment I ever knitted. Completed over the course of 3-years, I began soon after learning to knit in 3rd grade and completed it in April of 6th grade. It was a birthday gift for mommy who kept and wore it at work for 30-years, then wore it during her health battle until her death. The value is priceless because it still is the only garment I’ve ever knitted or crocheted that has absolutely no mistakes. I wanted it to be perfect for her because she was perfect to me.
