Heirloom knitting

Some more pictures, this time of items knitted for my mother, and worn with great pleasure by her and subsequently by me.

First, a waistcoat of my own design, knitted all in one piece. The idea here was to include a significant piece of text, in this case lines of verse. I'd already done one for myself with proverbs. In two ply jumper weight, from Jamieson and Smith these are at least fifteen years old.

Then, the Kaffe Fassett waistcoat in browns.

This is also in very good nick and perfectly wearable. Kaffe's designs are classics, though not to everyone's taste.
