My parents came over for 9 days at the beginning of May, for Boy’s birthday… They drove from the Loire Valley in France all the way to Sussex.
Their car was full of all sorts of things, including… Yarn. Some of it was bought by my mum on car boot sales in recent times and a lot of it is what’s left of her own stash of yarn that she bought back in the late 70’s – early 80’s. It was all in a chest of drawers that they brought across the channel.
As I was going through all the yarn, emptying the drawers, I found a few of my mum’s old projects that she probably has completely forgotten about. I find that sort of discovery fascinating….
There is a pink toddler size jumper that my mum had knitted for me. I don’t think I wore it much… My guess is that I probably had grown out of it by the time she finished it…
I have started to gather the bits of yarn needed for it’s completion, 35 years later.
That’s a pretty cool wrist warmer! Look at the colours! Oh my! The colour work looks like sound waves! The finished one is very long too…
That’s my wrists – and arms – sorted for next winter!
