OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW.




When I was about 10, we chose this jumper for Dad for Christmas. It was a radical departure at the time, because it wasn't blue or grey, but red with a pattern on.
Dad has worn it every Christmas since, but this year, the jumper disintegrated having being attacked by moth.
Knitted in Shetland, the fabric is rather comforting, so I've saved what I could.
With the 'Speedweave' darning aid and an orange and satsuma as templates for heal and toe, I converted the back of the jumper into a pair of socks.
