I found some vintage green wool yarn, brand Columbia Minerva; it still was new in its package, even though it was old. I found this at a thrift store about 8 months back. I wasn't sure what to do with it, but with 10 balls for 5.00 I figured something, in time, would work. Yesterday I was given an old Columbia Minerva book, late 40's early 50's. In this book was a pattern for a sweater. Low and behold, the exact same yarn I had was called for. So, yep, you guessed it! I started a sweater yesterday. I have it half made. I wouldn't usually wear this bright of a green, but I have a black skirt with red roses and green leaves, and this will match it well. That is another bonus of the whole thing. I hope that I will be able to finish this in a week.
The one I am making is the one on the left, of course.
This is also my excuse for no Valentine post yesterday; too much fun crocheting.
