My First Knitted Sweater
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.
