Making a sweater


This is a two-fer. I am making a sweater and not using my hands to eat snacks at the same time. Clever!! God help me if I can't do two things at once. Here is a photo of the pattern.


Don't you love that guy with the long hair and mustache? I am such an old hippie! I checked, 1975


Sort of a sage green. The back is done (folded in half)


An  antique needle case I was given many years ago. I am using it for my ribbing needles during this project.

  1. I love knitting - best thing to curl up with on a wintery night. I too like the gentleman with the moustache! I think I have some patterns like that too. Nothing wrong though with good basic design. I have nearly finished the blanket of squares i am knitting - will post when it is done.

    1. I WISH I still had those patterns from the 60's and 70's. I have made such beautiful Arans but through over 20 moves, I lost them all.

  3. In my next life I will learn to knit! It seems to be a very calming thing, without ruining health!

    1. It is perfect for ADD people who can't sit still during a meeting or while watching a movie!!
