    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?!

  4. Mel says:

    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!”

  12. kelley says:

    Oh Lord. You know most of these people hated the idea!

  13. Lacey says:

    When is it ever a good idea to wear matching outfits? I mean they’re not an athletic team!

  14. whoa says:

    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

  16. Carrie says:

    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.

  17. Poppa says:

    Don’t worry – they have a few spares for guests.

  18. Leghound says:

    Makes me think of Monk when Randy got a wallyworld sweater and told people his Granny
    knitted it.

  19. JaylBayt says:

    This pic makes me dizzy…

  20. Sheila says:

  21. Aaron says:

    good thing it IS color coded, or I’d be lost with that kid between grandma and mom

  26. Claire says:

    I have that sweater. My grandmother gave it to me!

  27. Krystal says:

    Wow hahahah

  28. Freddy says:

    I think the numbers are their ages.

  29. joancrown says:

    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!

  30. motaboy says:

    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?

  32. 007Lemming says:

    WOW! Grandma must have carpel-tunnel syndrome after that knitting endeavor.

  33. KDR says:

    ‘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.

  34. Cammie says:

    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.

  35. Renee says:

    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…

  36. Mel says:

    they must live in Minnesota

  37. Bodene says:

    Good ol’ aunt Betty, holy cow that gal can knit!

  38. karen a says:

    I love how everyone is colour coded…just in case you forget what gender you are!
