      Yes, still have it; these are recent pictures. Haven’t worn it in about 25 years. Every few years, I’m bitten by a fiber bug. This year it morphed into knitting/crocheting/felting experiments with yak. So far, the results aren’t exactly kitschenette appropriate (undyed & monotone!).

    HUH!?!? What!?! That’s your first finished knitting project? That’s absolutely insane. As a knitter I’d like to point out that while that sweater may not be everyone’s taste, that’s like the trigonometry of sweaters! I’m gasping for air. The fact that it’s knit in the round, sliced open and then a zipper sewn in. Not to mention the intarsia knitting and WOW!! Crazy, just crazy. A normal 1st knitting project is a washcloth or a garter stitch scarf! I’d wear that thing today.

    That is incredible for a first project, I can’t believe it. I’ve barely shuffled through my first pair of leg warmers, I like knitting.. but I’m terrible at it.
