Sweater Weather Includes Booties and Sweaters and the Ageless Style Linkup

Sweater Weather for Women of Many Generations in their 50's, 60's, & 70's

Sweater Weather Includes Booties and Sweaters

Quote of the day: “The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.” William James

Since it’s the first Tuesday of the month and what I’d consider sweater weather, the ageless style group is coming to you full of sweaters and bootie styles. Let me just tell you how funny Paula is when she announced this theme. This is what she emailed us:  “I’m keeping with a fall vibe, so let’s get cozy (my favorite thing  to be 😍) in … Booties and Sweaters . Bottoms optional 😳 …. I mean, wear whatever you like on the bottom, or maybe you’ll choose a sweater dress… but do please cover the “other bootie”. 😘 😂”

This is exactly the kind of woman I love to hang around. Because all I would be doing the entire time is laughing. Maybe I’m attracted to this personality because I’m usually so serious? And I realize that I need some more fun and games in my life?

Anyways, we started out matching the sweater to the booties in our last post. So this post for the three of us is all about the sweater and booties not matching each other.

 Jodie’s (50+) Outfit: When I think of sweater weather, I think about pulling out my knitted creations to show off.

It’s funny because I don’t think of the sweaters that I knitted as being very stylish. Maybe that’s because they aren’t usually something you see at any of the stores, or on any blogger around. But then again, that’s why I started knitting in the first place. To have something original and unique.

Since I was trying to make sure we didn’t match our sweaters to our booties, I pulled out my purple booties and grey sweater. And then added in a purple top to tie it all together.

I also wanted to showcase my new tassel earrings from Happiness Boutique. If you look close at some of the photos of our Seattle meetup, you can see I’ve already worn these a lot! This website has a bunch of great items, and you can get 10% off anything along with free shipping with the code jtouchofstyle.

Even though they are more of a burgundy, and my top is a purple color, I thought they still went with the trim of the sweater. Besides, I guess I don’t have any purple earrings in my collection. So that’s my rationale for wearing these.

sweater weather and accessories

So let me tell you about this sweater.

This is a linen stitch for this cardigan so it doesn’t look like your normal knitting sweater. In fact, I put together 3 different yarns for this because I wanted to create something a little more colorful than just grey. I had picked up this furry trim in Albuquerque when we were there many years ago for a knitting event.

Because of the trim, I figured I didn’t need a necklace or any other accessory at my neck.  I did grab my yellow purse because I thought it added a pop of color, and because it was a crossbody version.

Sweater weather and the outfits

My jeans are these coated jeans that I have 3 different pairs in my closet. Once I found this kind of jeans, I was hooked because they don’t accumulate the pet hair that seems to be all over my house. (Does that mean I’m a terrible house keeper? Probably….)

The jeans look a little like leather because of the shine, but they aren’t. Seriously, if you have any pets in your home, I’d recommend trying these.

Nancy’s (60+) Outfit: For Nancy’s sweater weather outfit, we tried to match her boots to her jeans and her top but not her sweater.

You might recognize this sweater from our orange and black post that we put together for Halloween. It’s such a fabulous bright color that is so eye catching when matched with the darker hues we usually wear during the colder months.

The shirt that Nancy is wearing is the top she received from Covered Perfectly this spring. It’s become one of Nancy’s favorite tops because the color always looks so nice on her, and it has the band at the bottom of it. Even though it has the bell sleeves, they are soft enough that the cardigan goes over them just fine.

And then this top is the perfect canvas for a fabulous statement necklace. The nicest thing is you don’t have to spend a lot on necklaces to have an interesting selection. There are many stores that carry neat ones like this one or this one. Or you can always sign up for Rocksbox , get your first month free with the code JTouchofstylexoxo and have a couple different ones sent to you throughout the month.

Now I’ve shown quite a few unusual colors for our ankle boots in this post.

With my purple ones above, and my mom’s red ones below, and now Nancy’s light blue ones, these are all certainly colors that may not be considered basic selections. Nancy and I picked these out 2 years ago while shopping because I thought they’d be perfect with all of her jeans.

The funny thing is that now that we’ve been blogging, she doesn’t end up wearing her jeans quite as often as before. Well, let’s just say I don’t see her in them as much. But the light blue booties are a fun color to play around with in her outfits.

But even if the ankle boots aren’t a basic color, I think the jeans are.

Grey jeans, are certainly a versatile item that goes with everything. Do you have a pair?

Charlotte’s (70+) Outfit: My mom is covering her booty with a sweater dress and ankle boots.

She is wearing hose with this outfit on this day, and when it gets colder, I’m sure she’ll be breaking out the tights also. If we were trying to match the sweater to her boots, we could have chosen navy boots. But I think pulling the red out of the print in the dress, adds a nice contrast to the look.

The fair isle detail is such a great way to add some interest to the dress without having to wear a necklace. That being said, my mom is an accessory junkie, and so we added in a small scarf to the mix.

sweater weather with other details

Red ankle boots are having their day right now.

I’ve been seeing boots like these on tons of bloggers lately. Now you can tell that my mom’s are an older version because of the heel. But she’s certainly gotten her money’s worth out of them because she found these while she was thrifting. There really are some hot red boots that any aged woman could wear with lower heels. For instance, if you like patent leather then you’ll love these. Or if you like the darker red boots, then this pair would be nice.

sweater weather and ankle boots

This is a perfect example of how we should be open to shopping at new stores, at any age. Because my mom bought this dress at Charming Charlie. You may not think of getting clothes there, but there are certainly some inexpensive pieces that could work for you.

She’s actually worn this dress quite a few times on the blog. The last time the dress made an appearance was when we were showcasing my mom’s OTK boots with it. These dresses are a great way to dress up in the winter but not sacrifice style or warmth. If you don’t have one then let me introduce you to a black one or a grey one.

The Facts

Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.

Keeping in Touch

Are you registered for my email reminders to let you know when a post goes live? I’d certainly love it if you take the time to sign up and make sure all your friends sign up too!! There are other ways to follow my blog. Facebook readers can see my posts by liking my page. Or my Pinterest page has all of our outfits in a nutshell!

    Thank you for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party. You Chanel type jacket is gorgeous.

    The booties are so cute. Also, your mom’s legs – WOW!

    • Thanks so much Daenel!
      My mom will just live reading this!!!

  • CathyLynchLawdanski

    You are so talented! I can’t believe you knitted your sweater! It is lovely!

    • Thanks Cathy!! I’m at my knitting retreat this weekend, and you wouldn’t believe the talent here!!!

  • It’s definitely turned ‘sweater weather’ now, hasn’t it! Jodie, your cardigan is gorgeous and I love how the tassels of the earrings work with the frill of the cardigan. And those gorgeous purple boots of yours. But your Mum takes the prize – wow those are funky booties and she’s rocking it loud!


    • Isn’t she amazing, Jacqueline??? And to think that a couple of years ago she wouldn’t wear her ankle boots with a dress!!!!

  • You are a great example of how I want to become later in life! You three always radiate of happiness in photos and look so stylish as well! Lots of love!


    • Thanks Khloe! That’s exactly what I hope for…to realize that getting older is not a bad thing!!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    Oh gosh, you ladies look so cozy in your sweaters and boots. And wow, I am going to need to up my boots came. I don’t have any in fun colors. I LOVE your boots, Jodie! The purple color of them really goes with your purple top and even your sunnies. I love that beautiful sweater you have on! Nancy’s statement necklace really accents her look and your mom looks great with all of the red accents, esp those red boots!


    • That’s the advantage of getting older Carrie!! You already have the basic colors so you can start buying the fun colors!!! And the funny thing?? I just thrifted some jeans that exactly match these purple booties!!!

  • Imastounded

    I love your beautiful hand-knit sweater, Jodie. Très chic!

    Bell sleeves are my nemesis this winter. I wear sweaters every day in the cold. We’ve had full-on winter for a while now. Bell sleeves do not work well with sweater sleeves, so they are a no-go zone for me. I did try to like them, but bunched-up bell sleeves inside sweater sleeves look bad. I can’t make it through winter without my sweaters. I have tried sweater vests over bell-sleeve tops, but there’s just too much volume where I don’t need it.

    • Thanks so much!!
      The statement sleeves are so hard in the winter!! Unless you bought some sweater with these kind of sleeves—then you’d have 2 in one??? But also capes and ponchos would be perfect for these sleeves, don’t you think???

      • Imastounded

        Not so good when putting on parkas, though. Only suitable for summer, sans winter coats.

        • You’re so right!!! It almost makes me want to move to a warmer climate!!!

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    LOVE the touches of purple and your moms dress and boots….so CHIC and Festive!

  • writeofthemiddle

    OMG you all look fabulous but your outfit is my favourite this week. Fabulous and OMG that sweater you knitted is gorgeous! You are so clever! Love how you’ve tied this outfit together. Gorgeous! 🙂 #TeamLovinLife

    • Thanks so much Min!!!
      I’m off to my knitting retreat this weekend, so hopefully I can create some more beauties!!

  • I wear cardis and fitted jumpers for work but there is nothing better than wearing a bit, over-sized, sweater on a weekend for feeling cosy and warm.

    • You are exactly right Emma!! They are like a big hug!!!
      Thanks for joining in!!!

  • Shahab Khan

    Thanks for sharing your info. I really appreciate your


  • This week my fave is your sweater and ankle boots. It’s hard to believe that you’re into sweaters and boots while we’re doing the opposite. #TeamLovinLife

    • It is hard to wrap the brain around the opposite weathers, Jo!!

  • Kathy Marris

    Your Mom looks fantastic in that sweater dress and booties! It’s hard to believe that you’re over there rugging up whilst we’re shedding layers for summer. #TeamLovinLife

    • It is a funny phenomenon that we are exactly opposite in weather!!!
      But hopefully you can pin these ideas for your cold days….
      Thanks Kathy!!

  • Mariana Olnowich

    OMG! Your sweater is gorgeous, and the fact that you made it is fantastic. All 3 of you look absolutely beautiful and Mom looks amazing in her sweater dress. Love your blog. Need I say more.

    • I can’t tell you how much I appreciate these super kind words, Mariana!!
      Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  • loved your sunnies and all three pairs of boots – I’m a big fan of coloured shoes and those sunnies really rocked! It’s really hot here today so it’s hard to look at all those sweaters without feeling hotter!

    • It is so hard to be on totally different seasons and try to appreciate the outfits, Leanne!!!

  • I love your mother’s red boots and I have some a bit similar though they’re a bit higher than what I’m used to now! I also love her sweater dress.

    And I love your purple boots.

    I’m not much of a sweater wearer. I tend to dress in sweatshirts (hoodies or as we often call them, sloppy joes) around the house and informally and maybe a coat for anything else. I don’t wear a lot of wool I guess and I’m not sure why. I think I have the perception of it being itchy. #teamlovinlife

    • I know a lot of people have issues with the itch of wool. But as a knitter, there is the fact that it’s not really the wool, but the chemicals to clean it. So “real” wool isn’t that way. It’s just hard to find that sometimes!!!
      Thanks Deborah!!!

  • You always do a great job of pulling colors together Jodie! I’m also really impressed that your knitted that sweater, it’s beautiful!

    pumps and push-ups

    • Thanks Brooke…. I am an avid knitter, although I haven’t been able to knit as much lately with all of this blogging!! But tis the season, and I’m getting excited about it again!!

  • ADA

    Sweaters, cardigans and knit-wear are what these cold months are about and what I am wearing every day now. What state do you beauties blog from?! Love your fun, dressy, ruffly cardigan (it has a Channel vibe) and your mom’s beautiful Winter-festive sweater dress!

    • Thanks Ada…and I totally agree.
      We live in Denver, Colorado!! It certainly gets cold here, but we also have some wonderfully warm winter days!!! Where do you live?

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Your sweater is exquisite.

    • Thank you so much Kathleen!! I’m glad I pulled it out, because I’d kinda forgotten about it.

  • Fall time is all about boots and sweaters for me! I love the styles you all chose and how different they all are!


  • Love all these cozy sweater and booties! Dying over your mom’s booties specially. They are so chic and modern.


    • Thanks Kathrine. I will admit that I get my love of shoes from my mother!!!

  • These sweaters are so cute! I totally agree that no fall look is complete without booties. I could definitely see myself wearing all of these outfits. SO cute!
    Thank you for linking up this week!

    ~xo Sheree

    • Thanks Sheree!! This is basically my uniform for the next 6 months—ha ha!!

  • Hey Jodie! Thanks for hosting this link-up. I think this is the first time I’ve linked with you, weird! I love Nancy’s necklace and how well it goes with her shirt. Your mom though it totally rockin’ that dress with the booties. I bet her friends are totally envious of her style and her legs! I’ve bought scarves and jewelry at Charming Charlie’s but never thought about looking for clothes there. Thanks for the tip!


    • It’s true that Charming Charlies has fabulous jewelry, and I wasn’t sure about their clothing at first. And it’s probably not the best quality, but for trendy things—it’s so fabulous. I’ve even bought Nancy (and myself) a couple of things from there also!!
      Thanks Julia!

  • How cute is your mom in this sweater dress! Love it. Thanks for linking up with The Blended Blog style!

    Shelly | The Queen in Between

  • Booties and sweaters are two of my favorite things for fall! All of you ladies are rocking your looks!! A sweater dress is one of my most worn pieces to the office when it’s cooler out. Sierra ~ Beautifully Candid

    • They are the perfect basics for the colder weather!! I think I could almost call them my uniform for the next 6 months…ha ha!!
      Thanks Sierra!

  • Jodie, I love the way your mom pulled off the shorter skirt! And the colors in your outfit are great!

  • Love all these sweaters Jodie and everyone’s booties. The outfits are lovely and I am impressed with your jacket Jodie, how talented! i love sweater dresses, so I love your mom’s look too.
    Have a great day!
    jess xx

    • Thanks Jess!!
      This is kinda our uniform for the next 6 months…ha ha!!

  • Jodie, you ladies are killing it! I love your outfit so much and have a jacket almost like yours! Charlotte is amazing in her sweater dress! Yay for you ladies!

  • Kirsten Wick

    Your cardigan is so fun. I do love knitted jumpers and there are currently some amazing ones out there (in fab bold colours too!). Jumpers and boots are the perfect combo. Love, Kirsten xx


  • I’m glad everyone covered their “booty” LOL. I love how your sweater matched your booties, so cute! And that sweater dress is so pretty!

  • Such a gorgeous cardigan. It’s very Chanel-esque! I would wear it for sure 🙂 Gemma x

  • Laura

    That cardigan is beautiful! I love the furry trim and all the colors in it! It looks so nice with the purple!

    • Thanks Laura!!
      I have some more of this furry trim in another color, but I’ve never gotten around to using it. Trust me when I say, I have projects galore for when the time comes that I’m bored (ha ha ha ha)

  • Love the cardigan Jodie! I like the edging. Perfect colour too xx

  • Ladies, you look awesome in your fall outfits! =)

  • Your mom got her dress at Charming Charlie?! Get outta here!!! I need to learn how to knit so I can make myself a fabulous sweater like yours. I also really like your burgundy earrings.

    Pants that don’t show cat hair? I’m gonna need to check those out because…I live with two long haired furry monsters.

    • You haven’t tried the coated jeans yet, Roxanne??? I’m telling you—they are my bestest friends when it comes to lack of pet hair!! Either that or real leather ones, but you gotta try them!!!

  • Karen R

    Love all three outfits! Those red boots are perfection! Thanks for joining in on the Style File Link up today!


  • Haha, bottoms optional is pretty funny, and I like that your mom chose the sweater dress. Always such a favorite for this time of year!

    • I do think the sweater dress is the winter version of the t-shirt dress!! Perfect for almost anything!!
      Thanks Lydia!!

  • I love, love that sweater on you and it is so Chic.

  • Cindy

    Okay Jodi, seriously you are so talented! That sweater is AHHHHdorable! I love the ruffle trim, the colors and the style! OMG!!! I’m amazed! And I love your coated jeans. I’m going to have to get some. They do look like leather. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • That’s so nice of you to say that Cindy, but if you hung around the knitters that i hang around, you’d realize that this is nothing!!

  • Another fun post! If cold weather EVER gets here, I’m ready with 2 sweater dresses from last year in neutral colors, new tights and even a pair of CAT Booties in blue! Do you know that Caterpillar, the heavy equipment manufacturer, has a line of footwear? Mine have two buckles on each shoe that have to be undone to get them on, but once they’re fastened again, they are fantastic for jeans, just as you said.

    • Well, feel free to come visit because it’s quite cold here already, Jean!!!
      Would love to see your sweater dresses when the time comes. And you have to remind me of your fashion blog—you would’ve thought I bookmarked it, but either I’m blind or crazy (or both)!!!
      I had no idea Caterpillar made footwear!!! How the heck did you find those??

      • I always find the best things when I look for something else. Found these in a catalog but Caterpillar has their own web site. Zappos has a few of their boots. Their primary merch is steel toed and heavy duty but they have some ‘cute shoes’ too, including a pair of blush wing tips.

        You don’t find my fashion blog because it is inactive right now.

  • Judy Gramith

    OMG!!! Like many of the other commentors I’m slightly blown away by our dear Charlotte in this posting!!! Clearly she has taken the challenge to risk her more conservative fashion thinking and try some less age restrictive dressing. The sweater dress looks great and I’m envious of her ability to wear that heel!! I do think the sweater dress requires a heavier scarf and of course good ol black tights would be cozier in winter winds.
    Nancy’s sweater is one of my favorites! It’s a color you just don’t see and that makes me love it even more!! I have a couple of pairs of grey jeans and find them very versatile. Nancy’s necklace is SO cool. I love a heart and this one is so unique and dramatic! The blue booties are also GREAT, I find that blue is a really wearable color and elongates the leg especially when worn with any blue jeans. I think I WANT Nancy’s entire outfit, please!
    Jodie, your knitting talents are just amazing. This sweater has a real Chanel vibe and the blend of colors you chose are perfect. The purple column of color beneath and golden yellow crossbody are perfection!!
    These looks ROCK COZY!!!

    • You always make me smile every time I read your comments, Jude!!!
      Let’s just say you have a way with words, along with a fabulous personality!!!

  • I am loving all the outfits!! But wow – those red booties on your mom!! How awesome! My eyes immediately went to your earrings – Jodie! They’re so pretty. And how awesome you knitted your sweater! It looks incredible!


  • Rebecca Saffer

    Fabulous post today. I am itching to take up my knitting needles again after seeing your stunning sweater. I have got to start bringing more color into my closet (it has basically turned into a black hole!) The booties are all adorable. Your mom looks darling in that dress and Nancy’s outfit is very lovely. One problem I wanted to mention to you is that I have not been able to access your posts from my e-mail account. McAfee gives a red warning so I went directly to my bookmark of your blog.

    • The black hole happens to all of us, I think!! I’ve been slowly staying away from black, and it’s a great excuse to buy more clothes (like I need a reason–ha ha)
      Thanks for the info about McAfee. I just had another reader email me the same thing yesterday, so I had my security people (that I pay to keep me safe) run a couple of scans and fix some issues. My other reader said hers worked today, so hopefully it might help for you too??? Let me know!! (it’s always something…..)

  • Charlotte’s outfit is AMAZING! The styling is absolute perfection, from the bold earring, to the chic neck scarf, to those fierce little boots. And it’s from Charming Charlie to boot?! Then I’m sure it was a steal. It looks like she’s having so much fun wearing it, too!


    • Isn’t my mom fabulous, Liz??
      Thanks so much for boosting her confidence!!

  • Your sweater!!! 😍😍😍 Your mom has fabulous legs! Love her thrifted booties! Love Nancy’s color combination. 👍 You all look cute and cozy!

    • Thanks Darlene!!! You are so sweet and I’m sure this will make my mother’s day!!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    You all look so lovely and warm!

    • Thanks Terri!!! It is getting quite cold here so we have to bundle up!!

  • shootingstarsmag

    All very good looks, ladies! I’m loving the sweater dress and the purple booties. Sweaters and booties are just classics. 🙂


  • All these sweaters are fantastic! Love the tassles!

  • Mama wins today…too cute in that dress with boots!

    • Isn’t she one hot mama (ha ha…couldn’t resist!!)??

  • donnanance

    Jodie, I am so impressed with your knitting skills! The sweater is gorgeous and I’m drooling over the purple suede booties. Love the detailing on Nancy’s booties…the necklace is perfect for the outfit. The top is a very flattering color for her. The red dress looks fab on your mom…good find on the boots. This is where some of the fun colored tights would come in play. My husband still thinks the word “boots” means foul weather wear. Silly boy… I wish we had had fashion boots when I was in school. Can remember many a day wearing cute little flats in the snow and slush and freeeeezing! xoxo

    • Thanks so much Donna!!! I do love the creative aspect of knitting. And the funny story about these booties, is I resisted them 2 other times when we were out shoe shopping. I figured by the third time (and super sale) they were meant to be mine!!
      Thanks for always including mom and Nancy in your comments. I forward the comment to them so they can enjoy it too!!
      And my hubby actually has some great boots now. We ought to get your hubby a pair so he can understand the interest???

  • Pauline Starsmore

    Your cardigan is so pretty you are clever.Nancy and Charlotte both look very nice. I do like your mums red boots but not sure about the heels they look uncomfortable.

    • Well, I’m sure my mom would tell you that these are “sitting boot” Pauline!!! But that’s never stopped her from buying things. I don’t think she wears them when she has to take the light rail downtown. But the times that we drive somewhere, so there’s not much walking—then it’s no big deal!!
      Thanks so much for the lovely compliment!!!

  • Miriam Zakharova

    great post as always dear!


  • Karen

    There’s that sweater! I’ve been waiting to see that! It’s fabulous Jodie. I’d be wearing that with everything! It would work in so many different situations and with either casual or dressy clothes, it’s just perfect! The trim is so very cool! Your earrings are great, loving tassels and so glad to see the trend continuing into fall and winter! I keep trying on gray jeans and not buying them. I know I want some, but then I put them on and just don’t feel that great in them, not sure why. Maybe I’ll have to try again, or maybe I’m trying the wrong shade of gray and maybe should go a little darker. Your mom looks so youthful – she’s really amazing! Her hose match her skin tone perfectly which is not that easy to accomplish. Would she mind sharing the brand? It is so cold here in the winter that I also wear hose (and because they just make my legs look better), and also it seems that they are making a comeback. Our dress code at work has always required them but I like to match my skin tone. I love the color of Nancy’s booties!

    • Thanks so much for the lovely, lovely compliments Karen!!
      Yes…I do love this sweater, and I have worn it a ton. But then I go through phases, and want to wear my other things—ha ha!!
      I wonder if it matters what you are wearing on top when you try on the grey jeans?? Or maybe they look dirty to you?? I know at first, I used to think of grey as sweatshirt material and that put me off.
      As for my mom’s hose. It’s been a struggle to get her not to wear the suntan ones. I tried to make her get rid of most that didn’t match her skin. I forwarded this to her, so maybe she’ll know the brand, but for all I know she gets the cheap ones from the grocery store, LOL!!!

  • What a FUN blog!! You three are beautiful. I love your style and your pizazz. I think you’re inspiring me. I hope you show some fashion with great-looking flats, too, since many of us are no longer able to wear heels (due to bunions, etc.).

    • Thanks for the inspiring comment Pamela!!!
      I do try to include flats in most of my posts, because even Nancy (my step mom–the 60+ model) has trouble wearing heels anymore!!!
      But maybe I’ll delegate a series to this type of footwear just for you (although it will have to be next year—-for some reason, this year is all booked up!)
      Would you want to join in with us??

  • Wow, what an incredible fabulous sweaters and boots! I want your mothers outfit! Haha, just fantastic. I also love sweaters, cardigans and booties!

    LOVE your sweater….it could go with so many colors and different accessories! I am still in search of a cute pair of booties that my feel can tolerate…it’s like a treasure hunt. I’m not giving up until I find them!!

    McAfee let me come straight to your blog today so it must like your links 🙂

    • Or maybe it was something that my security people did??? They did delete some old files, so maybe that was causing the problem. Again…thanks for letting me know, because otherwise I wouldn’t have taken care of it and maybe it was happening to others??
      Thanks for the love on my sweater!!
      It’s no fun when you can’t find good fitting boots—I wish I lived closer so we could go shopping together….

    Loving your knitted cardigan. Who taught you how to knit?

    • Thanks so much Kim. My mom was knitting before me, so I used the written instructions that she had in her stash. Then when I had issues, I would ask her for help. But now, you can go on You-Tube and see it all so easily!!!
      It’s fun!!
      Do you knit also??

    Loved all the outfits today. I love that you are wearing a cardigan that you knitted! Having just gotten back into crochet after many years, I look forward to making myself something — after I finish a long list of gifts for Christmas!

    • Thanks Eileen!!!
      That’s very impressive that you are crocheting Christmas gifts!! I used to make knitted ornaments for my employees every year, and I miss doing that!!
