The Honeymoon Sweater

Purl Too suggested I post one of my favorite things that I have knitted in the past. That's a hard question. It made me think “What is the oldest knitting project that I still have?” My high school and college “sweater girl” sweaters are long gone, so I'm pretty sure that my husband's honeymoon sweater is it. We went to Niagara Falls on our honeymoon and stayed on the Canadian side. I went into a wonderful little yarn shop and bought some Sirdar yarn and a pattern. The yarn was a soft worsted weight wool tweed. I knitted the sweater in the car on the way home. It has held up beautifully. Let me see, I guess it's 43 years old in August. I still have the husband too!
