The picture of my Dad's sweater the other day reminded me of this one. My sister Lisa took it years ago of four of us wearing sweaters I knit:
On the far left is my sister Chris wearing an Aran-style sweater I made for her in a pretty peach-colored yarn. I think the yarn was something acrylic because, at the time, I wasn't very sure of myself as a knitter. But the sweater turned out pretty good.
Next to her is my brother Jack wearing a sweater knit from Lamb's Pride Wool/Mohair. I charted that pattern myself. Jack told me when he was going through chemo that sweater was the only thing that kept him warm. I still get weepy when I think of that.
The third one is my sweater knit from Ballybrae wool in a design I made up after three Viking ships landed in Boston and I went to see them. The design includes Norse runes, Nordic symbols including the ships and the names of the ships knitted into the border. I still have the sweater and sometimes wear it when it is really cold.
On the far-right is sister Anne in an Icelandic ski sweater I knit from Lamb's Pride. Actually, I knit the sweater with Lisa in mind but it fit Anne better so she snagged it. I knit a Faire Isle-style cardigan for Lisa to replace it. I should get a picture of her in that.
So, those are a few of my sweater creations. More will be coming one of these days.
