Did YOUR Grandma Knit That? Issue Two

Yep. She probably did and I have hand written notes to prove it!  Right off the bat I can tell this pamphlet was well loved. Some of the pages are detached from staples holding it all together.


My Grammy and mom both loved knitting cables. Mom can't knit much anymore. Arthritis in her fingers make it too painful for her to knit. :-(


Flipping through I found two hand written notes in Grammy's handwriting. There is also a cigarette burn on the page above. Grammy had quit smoking in the late 1970's / early 1980's so this pamphlet has had some mileage. 


Ummmm check out the shirt under the vest. If that doesn't scream 1970 disco then I am not sure what does.


Seriously would you force your child to wear that jumper? Better yet would you wear it?

Ok the jumper's out but I do like the boy's sweater. I want to knit something for Patrick, who's 13, but I want to wait till he grows more so he won't eventually outgrow it.
