Genesis

As if I didn’t already have enough projects to think about, looking through the vintage magazines has given me ideas. An issue from the 1960s has a sweater and scarf set that I think would be very cool now. It’s got very nice details and I even like the color scheme. So now my head is spinning thinking about what yarns I might pick and how I’ll need to change it to adapt to my modern size (the largest version in the issue fits a 38″ bust, I’m a little larger than that; while my husband thinks it’s awesome, I think it means I need to lose a few pounds).

Hopefully, the challenge and excitement of updating a vintage pattern will carry me though the tedium of knitting a full-sized sweater in fingering weight stockinette.
