Antique Knitted Lace

I am in total awe of this piece of knitting. It was made my German/Swiss grandmother's sister in the 1930's. What is amazing is the size of the is probably finer than size 40 crochet cotton.
I don't think that my hands or eyes would ever be capable of attempting this !

Shetland Fair Isle Pullover

This is a fair isle pullover that I designed and knit from Jamieson & Smith's Shetland on US#4 needles. I used about 30 different colors throughout, but only two at a time per round. Neck and armholes were secured and cut in the traditional method. All the color changes really kept my interest, so I finished it in week!

Oldie, but Goodie !

I designed and knit this sweater 30 years ago. I was exploring the Nordic tradition, so this was knit in the round with cut steeks for the sleeves. I added the red hem facings to add a secret dash of fun and pazazz! This was a "cropped" style which a big departure from the long and loose sweaters that I was making at that time. I wore this yesterday and received raves and compliments. Still got it !! :)
