A sweater from 1969

I read a blog post today from Knitish that shared with readers the reasons why this one sweater has become a most prize possession.  It reminded me of how textiles can hold such strong memories for us.  The feel of the fibers, the smells that are stored there as time keepers, the comfort that is felt. It is stories like these that make me love knitting so much.  Hand knit items are not just things that we use or are pretty to look at. Knitting absorbs life like no other medium, and holds the memories there in it’s fibers to be cherished for years to come.
