beginning with a few relics


I thought I’d start with a few pictures of completed projects. This first one is a picture of my younger son wearing a hat and sweater set I made from yarn I bought in a shop in Waterford, Ireland, years and years before I ever had children. I can’t remember which yarn it was—I didn’t keep track of that information until quite recently—but it’s a soft, non-scratchy wool with flecks of color mixed in with the brown. Enough color to be interesting without detracting from the cables.

I used a vintage pattern from my mother’s stash, with a few alterations. The original called for a zipper closure, but I wanted a more traditional look, so I used buttons instead.
