A Lopi reunion! (and some pimping)
Guess what my mom found in her attic! The first thing I ever started knitting, that Lopi sweater! It must have been the winter of 87-88 and my roommate was teaching me to knit, step by step. Of course i ended up moving and never got to finish the sweater , then had no idea what happened to it! I remember splurging and spending a good 70-ish dollars back then in our small Plymouth yarn shop for the yarn. I think the pattern and needle were my roommates mom's. I knit a lot more of it then i remembered.... and it looks pretty good! I am going to finish it but not sure if it will fit, i was only a size 2 back then...pre kid! But i am so excited~ Now i wonder if she came across my old prep school hoodie...that i know WOULD still fit!
and that cabled sweater wrap: (still needs blocking)
and fresh blueberry muffins! (this was not a mix girls!) berries from the garden picked by my own little fingers! (recipe from Table Talk)
