I was looking through some old photos today and came across this:
Yes, this is me in Paris, in 1987. Note that I am wearing a hand-knitted top and skirt. This top was a favorite and I wore it frequently. Like most of my old knits, I have no idea what happened to it. (See here for a post about long-lost sweaters; it is so sad to lose track of hand-knitted items). I used a pattern for the top, which I believe was a Pingouin pattern, although I can’t find it in my knitting book collection. The yarn was a cotton in bright yellow with slubs of white. No notes of any kind remain (my post-Ravelry knitting is much better documented).
I knit the skirt without a pattern. It is just two rectangles, seamed at the side, with elastic at the waist. It is knit in cotton. I wore this outfit all over France that summer.
PS – If you’ve never heard of the Wayback Machine (or WABAC Machine), that’s just sad. You can read about it here. Mr. Peabody says so.
