My grandmother sheared sheep, spun the wool and kept the yarn unused for many years. It was some thirty, forty years ago. Then my mum knitted this cardigan from it and my dad used to wear it - twenty years ago. I stole it from him later and now my husband is posing in it for this blog, pretending he is a professional model (he does have modeling in his blood!).
Technical note, since the pictures aren't clear: Each skein of the yarn was little different shade of white and it made a nice effect in the knit.
