While reorganizing my studio I found 3 sweaters I had knit and never quite finished.
They were no longer my size! My granddaughter came over tonight for a visit.
She tried them on and loved them all. I told her it would not hurt my feelings if she said she didn’t want them, but she really loved all of them.
This one was totally finished and fit her perfectly. The color was perfect and we both agreed it was right in style. I knit it soon after 1984 – which means it is older than she is!
This was very roomy and I thought it might be too big for her. I hadn’t stitched the side seams yet. She loved it and I will finish it and have it ready for the next time I see her. I caught her laughing as I took this picture!
This was done with the exception of two yarns that I had not woven in. It will need to be blocked to make it fit perfectly and I will do that.
She now will have 3 new vintage sweaters as soon as I finish the last two. Heidi said they are all current styles which pleased me – timeless!
I spent a lot of time knitting these three sweaters and I am so glad she will be enjoying wearing them.
NOTE: these were all knit the old fashioned way - on two long needles by hand - no machine!
Cooper wanted his picture taken too! It's getting harder to get pictures of him as he is starting to get into that making funny faces stage. Took a few tries but this one makes a good puzzle. He loves to be the puzzle and loves to see the puzzles using auto solve!
