birthday-80   December 7, 2016


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.

    Happy Birthday again!
    I have been wearing a sweater that I knitted at about the same time, also from the neck down, It is Aran style and from a French magazine. I think I got it to knit on a road trip. I seldom wore it early on, but now, suddenly I like it. And it has been so cold that it is comfortable. Usually it is too warm.
