What a great picture! I wish I had a picture of the first sweater I ever knit (or maybe not!) It's probably in a landfill too, but glows in the dark - it was bright kelly green - what WAS I thinking? Nipple piercing??? Maybe that's too much information - yuck!


What a great picture!! acrylic or not, you did a fantastic job.


As much as I like for my life to continue on a forward trajectory, sometimes it's nice to take a peek back into the past.

Mr. Holland's Opus is one of my all-time fave movies. And yes, I still cry every time I watch it!

BTW - thanks for sharing the scarf pattern. I can't wait to get it on the needles.


Actually, that looks like an awesome first sweater! I wince whenever anyone mentions nipple piercing. Ouch.


Cool picture! And you've been in this country as long as I have. Does that make you a Canadian citizen too?

I'd love to have a copy of your Herringbone Scarf Pattern. I thought that "My So-Called Scarf" was the ultimate pattern for a Manos Scarf, but after viewing your Gallery I'll have to rethink! I got here while following a trail of socks and am so glad that I found you. I can see there's lots to explore and I may even venture a comment about marrying "young" after I've had a chance to read your posts more carefully. Thanks for sharing! Anne Marie


Hmmm, I bet your sweater is a nice padding in some animals home. My favorite book as a child was The Mitten, where all these animals took up residence in a lost mitten. I like to think of all my lost knit items as making a home for some cold animal.


You've already got a picture of my first knitting project, although I'll never forget the wavy imperfections or the wine that helped it along.
I feel fortunate to be a part of your past 25 years, but more importantly, I love being part of your present.


I absolutely love your Herringbone Rib scarf and would be thrilled if you could send me the pattern!

Just think, since it's non-biodegradeable, your sweater may have been "recycled" through many owners since you knit it.


great photo! I think that there's a lot of us who have some sort of unbiogradeable acrylic creation somewhere.


oh how sad that title made me feel! I am your past.......... Love, your little sister
