More Knitted History

The great thing about knitting for my Mom is that she actually wears and appreciates my work. There are pieces that she wears that I knit for her when I was in high school. That's what is good about selecting a classic style of sweater or vest to knit. It turns out, I have knit so many things for her that I have forgotten some of them. I was surprised to see this one. I made lots of vests for her to wear to work. She worked in a medical office, and sweater sleeves did not work under a lab coat. I do not remember where I got this pattern, or if the design was a hybrid of things I was thinking about at the time. I think the color pattern is a Kaffe Fassett design. Done in my "aggressive" style of color work.
