Below is the hand knitted baby sweater that she bought. It was expertly knit by Jacque of Foggy Bottom Yarns in Ferndale, CA (https://www.yelp.com/biz/foggy-bottoms-ferndale) The other item is a pair of Smart Wool socks Margaret bought for her physical therapist. Not as nice as hand knit socks but a whole lot faster.
