Title

My First Knitted Sweater

Creator

Huset, Marilyn

Date

1968

Description

I knitted my first sweater, a pullover, at age 17.  The pattern appeared in Ladies Circle Needlework magazine's Fall-Winter 1968 issue.  It was likely made in Red Heart or a similar yarn of a worsted weight.  I still have the sweater and the magazine.  I'd been knitting for almost 10 years by then and doing a sweater was certainly a learning experience.  I've made many sweaters since, but this one has a fond spot in my knitter's heart.
