Auntie Frances

I gave Auntie Frances a crocheted scarf
A few weeks ago we celebrated my Auntie Frances' 88th birthday! My Uncle Mort (90) hosted us for a lovely brunch at Del Rey Yacht Club. Believe it or not, Aunt Frances still knits! She used to help me with my knitting when I was a little girl. She has also given me many of her vintage knitting pattern magazines and books during the past 45 years.
I love getting together with my cousins. Since we're all very close in age and grew up in LA, we spent lots of time together as kids.

Larry with my cousins: JoEllen, Barbara, Amie

The next generation: Ben, MaHong, Mike
Uncle Mort, Auntie Frances, Ellen B.

Larry
Knit on, Auntie!

What fun! Happy Birthday, Auntie Frances! (I just can't get over how perfectly Larry's cardigan suits him. Well done!)

What a fantastic picture of you and your Aunt! I love her hair! She doesn't look a day over 60. You have fabulous genes in you famiglia. And Larry looks smashing in his cardie!

Joining in the wishes for another great year for Auntie Frances! It gives me hope to know that she's still knitting--maybe there will be time to use all my yarn, huh?

All y'all look great, but Larry. Wow. I know he appreciates you, but that sweater is AMAZING. On many different levels. :)

It's redundant at this point, I know, but I just have to tell you how fantastic Larry's cardigan turned out! :)
