The Sweetest Sentimental Sweater Set Story

Every so often, a mother has the incredible foresight to create something so special and heartfelt for her child. She understands the sentimental value is actually priceless and will be cherished for years to come.

My cousin recently posted a picture of her nephew and father wearing matching sweaters that her mother had originally made for her son and husband 25 years ago. Imagine the joy that filled Mom’s heart when she saw her first grandson wear the sweater she had made for her first son all those years ago! The constant factor being her husband, now a grandfather, that still fit in his sweater! Way to go, Grandpa!

In fact mom had such wonderful foresight, that she created two identical adult sweaters, one for her husband and one for her grown son.

    Three sweaters, three generations!

    Grandma created such a beautiful tradition that will be treasured and cherished for years to come.

Who knew something as simple as sweaters could provide such beautiful memories for Grandma and Grandpa? A new tradition has been created for the new mom and dad! And for many more generations to come!

I love that the sweaters were created in a gorgeous classic style that still look modern and fresh today. A great tip if you want to attempt this with your child, avoid trendy! Your future grandchild may not be be excited about the then dated attire.
