The 70's Sweater

The Best of Times---The Worst of Times

If anyone reading this is old enough to remember 1977 (it was the best of times; it was the worst of times), they might have been enamored of this knitting pattern featured on the cover of Family Circle magazine. It was a classic, and I had to have it. I made it, with my limited knitting skills. As luck would have it, it turned out rather nicely. I added a loop and a wooden button to keep me a bit warmer, but kept to the pattern in all other ways.

And I was lucky enough to find the original magazine intact in an antiques shop in Wisconsin. You just gotta dig for some things!

I still have the sweater (Mom says you should never toss a sweater) and if I can get a good photo of it, I'll post it later.
