February Lady Sweater

Mothers are special, and mine definitely is. In Exodus 20:12 God gives the commandment to "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you."Did you know that was the only commandment given with a promise attached to it?

Mom turned 81 years young last week. I her a February Lady Sweater, actually a vest because I ran out of yarn. I intended to make her sleeves but she liked it just this way!

The buttons are vintage cat’s eye buttons which HER dad wore on his vests back in the 1910's & 20’s and they match the yarn PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!! I had the exact number of buttons I needed (3).

Close up of buttons:She wore it out to lunch and then to Bible Study. It was a great day.


  1. I am working on making this sweater for myself right now so I was so excited to see your post. Your mother looks absolutely lovely in hers. My mother would have liked it as a vest also. What a great idea to use your grandfather's buttons for her. You are a sweet and thoughtful daughter.

  2. I love how your sweater turned out! And your Mom looks beautiful in it. She must feel very loved by you. xo
