My mother loved her yellow sweater so much that I decided to knit her another one.
I thought it would also make her feel better about her little toe. Her toe had been hurting for a while and although she was sure it was arthritis, it turns out the toe is broken and will probably never quite mend because of her age...
So, a red sweater to lift her spirits seemed to be in order.
Thanks to the SK120 knitting machine and to a well stocked stash, I whipped this up in no time.
This colour is very hard to photograph...
I did a hand manipulated lace motif at the wrists.
I also did the same motif at the front edges, which I then folded in half to give the edges more body. The neck opening closes with a hidden hook and eye.
Naturally, the same motifs are at the bottom of the vest. Simple but feminine, like my mother. ;-)
