This Old Thing...

I knit this sweater in 2007.
Before I joined Ravelry.
Before I had a blog.

I saw this pattern in a booklet at So Much Yarn and knew I had to make it.


I don't know the name of the pattern.
I don't know the name of the book.

I do know I used Cascade 220.

I have only worn this one time before. about 8 years ago in Canoe Bay Wisconsin. I was photographed in it. I saw the picture and thought

'heck no'

it's been in a drawer ever since.

It didn't fit right.

I was about to suck it up and give it away when I pulled it out of the drawer yesterday and tried it on.

It fit.

It fit well.

I didn't look like a sloppily dressed linebacker.

So I wore it to work today.

This was the first sweater I ever knit for myself.

Happy Monday!
Only Four more sleeps till I get to see my mom!!!

As much as I would love to wear this sweater to Thanksgiving and show her it's 85 degrees in her neck of the woods and I really don't want to test my theory on human spontaneous combustion!
