I've seen some of the shawls, capes and blankets she made before. But today, my mom brought over some bags full of clothing that my grandma had knit for me as a child. Amazing stuff! And I thought it was super cool that the most of the garments (including the 3 sweaters pictured here) were all knit EZ style with no seams or even button bands. I wish the light was better for the pictures but the afternoon was graying and with my little patience issue, I just couldn't wait to snap a few photos.
These are just a few of the many items my mom brought over. I'm amazed by her talent and attention to detail, but unfortunately most of the items are knit in the ever-popular acrylic of the 60s & 70s. However, a couple of items do seem to be wool and that little cable number above is about a size 3 and soft as can be.
As you can imagine, even though I don't have daughters to wear these items, they are a tremendous treasure for a knitter to inherit!
And, of course, what knitting collection from the 60s/70s would be complete without a funky, bold crocheted vest...
