Since it’s been very cold in New York, my dad got out his heaviest sweater which my mother made him when I was a kid. I remember the big brown cardboard box arriving full of maroon yarn.
As a knitter, I have a better appreciation for this sweater now than I did during the extended period of time that my mom spent knitting because my dad was 6’5″ and the sweater is very big. It’s got 4 cables in the front combined with a garter rib and 2 cables on each sleeve. (Note: Check out the great detailed finishing around the armhole area.)
Do you have a sweater that someone special knit for you when you were younger? If so, please add your response in the comments.
