That lanyard around my neck isn’t for a panic button!  It’s for my mailbox key!

The sweater I’m wearing is one of my hand knits.  The blue wool yarn was purchased in the Aran Islands Ireland.  I knit the sweater from the top down following an idea in a knitting book published in Norway in 1975.  That was one of the first knitting books I ever purchased.  How I found it I do not know but somehow I did when we first moved to Dublin  in the late 1960’s.
