I am still not able to knit for very long and therefore have made almost no knitting progress. I do have a new hand knit sweater though.
It was my great grandmothers. It is 100% wool. A little bit closer pic.
There are two tags in the back.
The first tag says 100% Wool, hand made in Italy.
The second tag is hand written (by my grandmother) and says 100% wool, Dry Clean, B. Jost (my great grandmother.) I am not sure why there is a second tag. I am fairly certain based on the first tag that my grandmother didn’t knit this sweater, but I am not 100% sure.
I went to Knit Lawrence today. It was a great time as always. I was able to knit on and off without too much trouble which was really really nice. After lingering past when half the group left someone approached the table and said they had yarn to give away. The remaining people each picked up a bag. I picked up two.
The yarn is Red Heart 100% wool. I am not sure that I really need it, but free is free. If anyone out there has a burning desire for some free yarn (Lora?) let me know. The colors I got were greens and a dark cream.
The price tag is pretty amusing.
99 cents for 100% wool, nice!
The cats insist on smelling every new thing that I bring into the house. It literally took the black cat over an hour to sniff every inch of the piano when I brought it home.
Hopefully today was a good sign and I will be knitting more soon.
