I don't remember much more knitting til I was in college. marc's mom is a knitter and his sisters were catching on then. I remember trips to yarn stores in new haven (so much yarn!) and sharing patterns and project ideas. I tell people that I really became a knitter then. about 30 years ago.
but honestly, a lot of the years between then and say late 2007 (when I joined ravelry and started to record my knitting projects)... it was a blur. I remember buying yarn and knitting certain projects. but not much else.
so it was a great surprise when I was going through the photos to find that great shot of sara's first birthday to find this one. from thanksgiving 1984.

and then this past week when I was dusting, I noticed the knitting in this photo collage (made by marc in 1992).
let me show you a few of those photos up close
|(fun photo from georgia tech's famous 1991 season closing game on the left) and on the right, a pregnant me (circa 1986) knitting a blanket for soon-to-be-born katie|
|knitting on the couch and wearing a sweater I'd made - not sure the year|
|circa 1983/4 - I knit the sweater I'm wearing. no published pattern, but the woman who owned my LYS wrote me directions. (I'm curious who took the photo, because this was just after we were married and it was just the two of us living in the condo!)|
