I knitted this for Mr A while on maternity leave in the winter of 1982. I had wanted to knit something for him for some time, and this certainly filled those last few weeks of pregnancy.
I've been looking at some fabulous colourwork on blogs and on Ravelry recently and have thought "I could never do that" but it seems after all that perhaps I could! I have sock club socks to knit first, but watch this space...........!
Looking at it today, I find it hard to imagine that I knitted this. But I did. And in reality it perhaps isn't as hard as it looks - there are only ever two colours in use at any given time.....
I am a little too fond of saying " I couldn't/can't do that" these days! One of my knitterly resolutions this year was to learn something new. Perhaps will also relearn something I once knew very well. This chance find has inspired me to better things - provisional crochet cast on here I come!
