My Knitted History

In the absence of photos of anything new to show, here's a look back to the 1980's. This is from a Vogue Knitting magazine, I think Fall 1984. Intarsia before I had a clue about what I was doing. If you look at the sleeve detail, I didn't finish it that well, either. This was knit from Tahki Donegal Tweed and some mohair from a cone, all purchased at Weaving Workshop (the earlier incarnation of Knitting Workshop). I made it for myself, and some years ago, gave it up for my mom to wear on her walks in her lovely Wisconsin surroundings.

These photos are from this Spring, taken on a walk to Belvidere Park, in Fontana, on Geneva Lake.
