Golden Jubilee


I am so pleased to report that the 50th anniversary sweaters were safely delivered to the honorees, Constance and Amworth Antonio. Here is a picture of the couple, wearing their new sweaters, with their son, Jean-Pierre, who commissioned them.

It was the first time I had met Jean-Pierre's parents, who proved to be a lovely couple indeed. I know JP has charted his own path in life, but he must have had pretty strong roots to be the solid, generous, talented, thoughtful and unique individual he is.

I am blessed to have a friend like him. Big hugs, JP!

And blessing to the Antonios, who celebrate 50 years together. I needed to draw on their example of patience, perseverence, creativity, faith and a sense of humour to make these sweaters. It was a great honour to be able to create these special garments for them.

    Why, thank you for the kind words Heather. In the list of qualities that have got my parents to their 50th, I think you could also add sheer stubborness. I know I'll be stirring some Quebecois and Jamaican feathers here but I do believe that those two countries do possess a particularly tenacious force. There was always a lot of emotion and spirit in our house. It kept them going and I think it'll keep them going to a 60th too. I'll ask you to knit toques for them then.
    Thanks again, Jean-Pierre
