Thanks to our matching sweaters, we’ll never get lost on fieldtrips!
Looks like they all have big doilies around their shoulders.
Mom: YO GRAMMY! Next year girls are hot pink with red stars on em’ and boys are A nice flanel green with moons.
Grandma:……..WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?!
They should think themselves lucky to be photographed in `sweaters’(jumpers where i hail from). My nana always gave us matching underwear. Now that would make an awkward family photo….
Laugh all you want. . . if those are handknit, that is a true labor of love. They are just gorgeous, even if the “Hey, I match my whole family!” isn’t such a wonderful idea. If they’re handdone, that is a remarkable accomplishment and I bow to the knitters skill and dedication. Amazing.
If you stare hard enough your see a boat,,like those posters.
they’ve been re-gifting amongst themselves for almost a decade now
Ok, well I have to admit that I would probably try to put a combination like this for our family pictures. I love sweaters, and I wear them all the time. My family just know that if they can’t think of anything to get me for Christmas, a new sweater will do just fine. I think they look great! Very nice looking family as well!
The perfect break for skiers wishing to escape for some superb skiing!
“…and we’ll all wear matching sweaters!”
Oh Lord. You know most of these people hated the idea!
When is it ever a good idea to wear matching outfits? I mean they’re not an athletic team!
teenager: mom do I HAVE to put this on?
mom: Do it or you’ll regret it…Grandma put a LOT of effort into knitting these for all of us.
where it’s wetter, wear a sweater
whether warmer weather
or sweater weather
wear a leather fronted
worsted woolen sweater
Does anyone remember that Spirograph toy thing from when they were a kid? That’s what this reminds me of. Like someone mastered Spirograph in yarn form.
Don’t worry – they have a few spares for guests.
Makes me think of Monk when Randy got a wallyworld sweater and told people his Granny
This pic makes me dizzy…
That is just weird…………………………..
good thing it IS color coded, or I’d be lost with that kid between grandma and mom
i feel sorry for the little girl who will grow out of hers so quickly – oh no i am the only one without one now!:-(
this screams where are the sombreros and margaritas!!! someone cue the small donkey.
Thanks very much for taking your time to create this very useful infos .
I have that sweater. My grandmother gave it to me!
I think the numbers are their ages.
This should not be made fun of. That takes a lot of coordination, not to mention the expense. Kudos, crazy sweater family. You go, you!
Its Dale of Norway, not dahl sweaters. They can cost as much as $700 but some are about $100. hmm, thats how many compound bows?
I knit too and I made 2 Dale of Norway sweaters and it took me 3 years to make them. I cost me over $300 in yarn to make the 2 (back in 94) and now I live in Texas and can’t even wear the damn things
maybe you can donate them to this family for future generations???
WOW! Grandma must have carpel-tunnel syndrome after that knitting endeavor.
‘Scuse me, but if those are Dahle sweaters, which I am guessing they are, this picture is a display of wealth. If you had a gift receipt for your particular sweater, you could get a fabulous and unnecessarily posh couple of nights out for the return, or a down payment on a very used car. The pattern does not lend itself to this huge a portrait, of course, because it’s a little stark and overwhelming an effect, but this was a huge effort on somebody’s part to do something classy and expensive.
Well, ok then. La di da!
It’s still awkward
Once again proving that wealth and taste are gifts not always given together.
So very true.
ha ha thanks you just made this funnier – now which one are you!?
…and your comment made it even funnier!
I am betting on Grandma – bottom center.
I have a VRIKKE sweater and it cost a bundle
get OVER yourself
This brings back fond memories of the sweaters my Nana used to knit all us grandkids! I thought I looked pretty good in them back then… but looking at this… there IS too much of a good thing.
don’t think so
Call me weird- but I love the sweaters- and I knit!
I would have to REALLY love my family to crank out that many fair isle yoked sweaters though…
You would have to REALLY love your fam…you mean you don’t? LOL
dont lie renee, this is your family isnt it
they must live in Minnesota
oh yah you becha!
this true. pretty sure my family took this exact same picture 2 years ago. minus the horizontal stripe accents making everyone’s shoulders look twice as broad.
they’re actually from a small town in massachussetts. i know this family haha
Good ol’ aunt Betty, holy cow that gal can knit!
Oh no!! hehe.. great sweaters
I love how everyone is colour coded…just in case you forget what gender you are!
Ahhh ha ha ha ha…….
All they need are little white dogs
At least it wasn’t matching yellow or pink bunny pajamas with the feet in them
I LOVE this comment!!!!
Gets cold up there in Utah don’t it? Not too much happening up here in winter ‘cept, skiing, snowmobiling, …… Dad bought Mom a knitting machine for Christmas one year and Mom kept pret-t-t-t-ty busy.
