Full disclosure, I may be one of the slowest knitters out there. Which would have caused my Grandma to shake her head in wonder as her fingers could fly. My dad has a long torso and he would come home and ask for a cricket jumper to be knitted. It would invariably be needed within the week and she would get it done. The first jumper I knitted was for my dad, it took me a few months and I would spend a few hours most days getting it done. Needless to say I’m in awe of what she could accomplish.
Soon after finishing that mum mentioned she would love a cardigan. So I went out and picked out a lovely purple yarn and found the pattern I thought she would like. After much effort I had about 6 inches done and we were traveling together. She pulled out her knitting and I noticed she was knitting with purple yarn as well, and wouldn’t you know it? She was knitting herself a cardigan in purple! Just as well as she got to wear hers for a few years before I completed this:
And I’m working on a new jumper for my husband in the same pattern as he really liked it:
It’s taking awhile. Good thing he isn’t growing! 🙂
