Thanks so much! She’s the best and always full of positivity and sas. She didn’t believe that I actually liked it and kept saying the arms were uneven and this and that. I’m 5’11” however this picture apparently makes look much taller.

There are no 5'11 guys, only 6 ft guys

I'm 5'10 am I 6 foot?

level 5

No you’re probably 5’8 - 5’9

level 5

Me too! My family always says I'm 6'.I don't it's not like I have low self esteem issues or anything. Right guys, right?

level 5

Sorry bud, join the dwarves on the other side.

level 5

No.

level 5

So close

level 4

I am 5'11.5" and people tell me to just say 6' but I'm not a dirty liar

I’m a 5’8.5” woman but I say I’m 5’9” because that means I’m 69 inches heheheh

level 6

That's definitely worth stretching the truth.

level 6

Nice.

I’m 4’11.5” & I just want people to know I’m almost 5ft.

level 5

Samesies. Always feel bad.

level 5

5’11 & 3/4. My wife hates it when I say I’m 5’11. But technically I’m correct, which is the best kind of correct.

level 6

Actually you round up so you’re 6’.

level 4

Everyone knows that the fifth foot is only 10 inches long.

level 4

I’m 7.7 inches, am I 8 inches?

level 3

I'm 6ft and from this picture I thought you were at least like 6ft3

level 1

Your grandma looks incredible for 91. A little manish but sweet

Looks good but the fact she is still knitting top notched sweaters at 91 is badass! Happy birthday to her and you are lucky to have her.

It's beautiful. What a labor of love!

level 1

Your grandma's sweater game is amazing.

level 2

Agreed! Can his grandma call my grandma and get her sweater game on lock cause I need a grandma knitted sweater asap. 112 in Phoenix and I'm dreaming of sweaters. That how good that sweater game is

level 2

I’ll show her all the nice comments too, although she didn’t believe me when I told her I loved the sweater lol

level 1

Love, love, love the sweater. That is definitely a labor of love and anyone can tell how much time and effort she put into knitting it, one row at a time.

level 1

Nice sweater! Happy 91st birthday to your Grandma

"Happy 91st birthday grandma! Now make me a damn sweater and make it extra snappy!"

level 1

Your grandma is the shit! (Although if you tell her that, you might want to use “bee’s knees” instead.) LOVE that she made this for you!

level 1

Wow what a fantastic grandma. Happy birthday Grandma, hope you have a great day 🎂🎂

level 1

Happy birthday, Gramma!

And there is almost no point happier than when an adult man receives a sweater made by his grandmother. Sincerely.

level 1

As a novice knitter I am envious of your grandmother's skills. What a beautiful piece. Something you can cherish forever. I also like her artwork behind you.

Grandma coming wit the real wavy wavy flow

I really thought this was a r/roastme post at first glance.

Happy birthday Grams!

Man grandma made anything is the best. My Gram quilted me a handbag and she can't believe I carry it every day. I asked her to make me a diaper bag too

I like hearing about this kind of stuff, my grandma is going on 71 soon and shes still active at the gym and does kickboxing!

level 2

Sweater is awesome

level 1

Awwww -so sweet! As a knitter, I can tell you that’s a lot of work. Lucky for you to have a grandma like that! I just spent last night watching fireworks with my almost 99 year old aunt - enjoy every second with your grammy! Happy birthday to her!

level 1

Happy Birthday to your grandma! And honestly- what an incredibly beautiful treasure for you. That sweater is beautiful. And what a better gift? Homemade from the heart :)

level 1

Yo as a person who knits, this shit is hard! Good on her!

A grandmother from another mother

level 1

Wait I want that sweater it’s pretty cool.

level 1

Grandparents are the best

level 1

Ooooo😍

level 1

My grandma is 91 but can’t knit. She did play pickleball with me though.

level 1

Happy birthday grandma! I hope I can be so talented by my 91st!

level 1

That’s a sweet-ass sweater! She is so wonderful to knit it for you 😊

level 1

What kind of adidas are those??

level 2

Not sure! I got them at a thrift shop believe it or not

Different kind of aww but I like it.

Cool sweater.

level 1

None of this belongs here. Post it to /r/pics. A sweater isn’t aww.

level 1

Never skip leg Day

level 1

Never skip leg day, bro.

level 1

I'd like to borrow you and your grandma for a while- but on separate occasions :D

level 1

If it’s your grandma’s birthday why did you take a picture of yourself instead of her?

level 2
Original Poster0 points · 1 month ago

I have other pics of grandmas birthday shenanigan. Just wanted to show off the sweater!

level 1

This belongs on r/pics. I don't mean to be rude or disrespectful, but...

level 2

Yeah no kidding. At least if it was a picture of his grandma with the sweater I would get it

level 3

I don't think anyone's grandma belongs on this particular subreddit. Or anyone's granddaughter or grandson, unless their "granddaughter" or "grandson" is furry.

level 1

Nice sweater... and I love you in Aunty Donna.

level 1

Jumper Like the one from mother on Friday 13th

level 1

What's it made of?

Eyelashes!

level 1

Dude, that's a really sweet sweater. I love the color scheme. I'm pretty partial to similar colors myself.

level 1

My, Wesley, how you have grown...

level 1

The best time to wear a striped sweater

level 1

Man I just moved into my grandparents house after they moved into a retirement community and we have the same Asian screen. Lol.

level 1

As far as knitted sweaters from Grandma go this one looks pretty tame. Nice score. Do you know what the material is by chance?

level 2
Original Poster2 points · 1 month ago

I think she’s just using yarn? I could ask her for sure!

level 3

I assumed so but I don't know anything about knitting so I can't eyeball material haha

Is it comfy? Something about a yarn sweater sounds not great. Maybe with an undershirt?

level 1

Happy birthday t' yer grandmother

level 1

Wow I really love that sweater on you! It looks great and suits you well. I wish I could have a gramma sweater, as well!

level 2
Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

Thank you so much!

level 3

You're very welcome. Happy birthday to your grandma!

level 1

Can she knit me one too please?

level 1

Cherish that

level 1

Yay grandma! And it's a nice sweater, grandma got some skills

level 1

That’s a cool sweater

level 1

Take such good care of this sweater! You are a lucky grandson!

Dude it’s 90 outside!!

level 3

SUFFER

level 1

That’s awesome! I bet you can’t wait to have someone comment on it just so you can say thanks my grandma made it for me.☺️

level 1

That is actually a really good sweater.

level 1

That will be your most treasured sweater for the rest of your life!!!! Happy Birthday to your Grandma too!!!! :D

level 1

As a knitter - a sweater is one of the most difficult, time consuming, and love intensive projects you can do. I know you treasure it! Nothing wears better than pure love. Hug your grandma for me please.

level 1

Dope sweater.

level 1

She hates you. She really does! No kidding. /s

level 1

From someone that knits.....she's got talent. If I still have the dexterity to knit at 91, I'd feel damn proud of myself!

level 1

Lucky guy! That's definitely something I'd treasure always.

level 1

Need picture with you, the sweater, and the sweet, sassy lady. I'm a fan of hers.

level 1

Does grandma have a link to the pattern?

level 2
Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

Unfortunately no, I’m a knitting rookie and she’s 91 and doesn’t know what the internet is lol

level 3

It’s lovely - and she’s awesome :)

level 1

Grandma still got game!

level 1

Oh hey, my brother and your grandma share a birthday. Sadly, he cannot knit such a cool sweater. Looks good!

level 1

Hope she had a wonderful birthday!!

level 1

Yay Grandma! Yay sweater! Happy birthday to Grandma.

level 1

I get knocked on for having skinny ankle (pretty slender and short), but you seem quite tall.

level 1

If I were your girlfriend I’ll borrow that sweater and never return it <3

level 2

Well that’s just rude.
