remembrance of sweaters past

Should auld acquaintance be forgot…

WHAM! sweater (circa 1998 – and the LAST time I endeavoured anything with intarsia… AGH!). Made in 100% cotton (can’t remember the brand – probably Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep):

… and back of WHAM! sweater (actually, the front… but that’s not how I wear it…)

Irish moss sweater (my first project knitted entirely in the round) – Cotton Fleece yarn by Brown Sheep. I bought too much yarn (seems to be a bad habit) so knitted one for my partner then one for me. AWWWWWWWW. 🙂 circa 2004.

Stripey T-shirt – knitted in Super 10 mercerised cotton.

I’d like to add to this archive with some sweaters given to my mother (provided she hasn’t thrown them out! . Digital cameras are either a blessing or a curse, I guess.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!

    Your “Wham” sweater is fantastic. I haven’t seen anything like it before. My head hurts just thinking about all the color changes. Awesome;)

    Thanks, Susan. This was actually based on a pattern based on a pop art comic strip from the 1960s (don’t remember the artist – sigh).

    And I must confess I ruined myself for colour work after that… in fact, the 20 plus balls of acrylic that I bought for a Kaffe Fassett sweater lie mocking me in my stash. Planning a log cabin some time soon…
