You’d probably agree that it’s a cheerful thing to receive family photos. It’s especially cheerful for me as a knitter when they’re showcasing handknits. What is more, the photo that arrived at lunchtime showcased a handknit Made (by me when I was living) in Italy. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes! But, sure enough, that little, blue angel top is still going strong these many years later. The ribbons didn’t survive all the washing that four children entailed, or perhaps it was a nuisance. But the rest of it is in practically mint condition and still helping to keep a baby warm.
- Sirdar pattern 3285
- Yarn: 4-ply Snuggly Baby Yarn (and that is most likely what I bought when I first used the pattern to knit for a friend in New Zealand). For the pictured top, I would have used whatever baby yarn I was able to purchase from the local shop. Plainly, it was a quality one!
- Needles: The pattern calls for 3.25 mm needles, which I expect I used.
May all your long-ago handknits come back to haunt you so beautifully 🙂
