      I absolutely love cable knit anything but this one takes the cake. Matching sweaters.. What more can one ask for.. I've done many cabled knit sweaters in my life but this one is breathtaking..

      It's great to see the traditions of knitting being made so well and passed from generation to generation - best way to keep this craft alive!

      Your obviously loving and skillful work shows off your "men-folk" quite admirably! I love the color you've used, and your yarn choice displays such crisp stitch definition...nice job!

      I love these beautiful cabled sweaters for baby and great grandpa. The yarn is beautiful and the little man and big man both look great in the aqua color.

      I've only ever cabled in cream: this is inspiration to try other colours, too.

      Hi Heather. Love the matching cardigan and jumper for your husband and grandson. Reminds me of the beautiful Aran jumpers my mum used to make. Beautiful colour too, Linda A x

      Thank you for the inspiration, hubby calls our grandson his little sidekick. Imagine Pops and his sidekick in matching sweaters. I can't wait to find a pattern.

      I love these matching sweaters for the grand parents and children! When my children werre small I made matching sweaters for their doll, but now we have grandchildren, I'll make them to match their grandfather. So sweet, and both receipients enjoy looking like each other I think :) Yours are beautifully done and I love the colour. Congratulations!

      These cardigans are gorgeous, you are very talented and work is exquisite. A family heirloom to say the least, both picture and sweaters. You should be proud of yourself.

      What a beautiful job you did. I love the colour you picked for them. I love knitting cables, because they add such texture to the project and it makes the knitting more interesting. I can't forget to mention how handsome the two boys are. ????

      I'm impressed - I've never attempted Aran knitting, may be I should give it a try.

      Oh, how very special to have a great grandson and his G.grandfather in (almost) matching sweaters. They both look pleased to be wearing one of your creations. The sweaters are a lovely color. Congratulations on your sweaters. I can only "drool and wish" that I will ever become such an accomplished knitter.

      This is my smile of the day! Absolutely stunning and the stitch definition with the yarn you used and the color you chose makes it so elegant. I can feel the softness just by looking at the picture.
