Everything old is new and so on.
I realize this makes it sounds like I live in an insanely crafty family, which come to think of it I kind of do, so never mind, BUT, I was at my brother’s yesterday, and his youngest daughter was wearing this sweater.
My mom knitted it years ago, for her older sister — out of a sweater that I saw her wear many many times growing up. It had a big giant cowl-neck-thing in that horizontal rib pattern; I suspect my mom has a thing for it.
I actually have a couple of balls of that yarn that were left over from the kid-sized sweater; I have no idea what to make with it. Any thoughts?
