My mom knitted this sweater for my when I was 14-15 years old, so the sweater is 18 -19 years old. The sweater is in surprisingly good condition, the yarn is either "Peer Gynt" or "Smart" Sandnes yarns.
The colour choices were a compromise between me and my mom. I used it last this weekend . I use it every time we go skiing (which was a lot ... not so anymore), I have used it golfing (I´m not good at it nor do it frequently, but hope to do more of it in the future) and on many occations. It has travelled with me to many places, lived with me in denmark for 6 years. I love my striped cardigan. But I´m ready for some new knitted garments in my wardrobe, and I have given up hope that my mom is going to make any more sweaters for me.
Here is were I left off with my chuncky garther cardigan
It is garther stitch but looks like crocheting in this picture
After I finish the Chunky Garther Cardigan I´m planning on another sweater for me, not just sure yet what to do, seems that I fall more easily in love with children´s clothes , maybe because they are not as big as a commitment as knitwear has been for me :) I´m hoping that it will not be again 18-19 years until I get the next knitted sweater.
