20 years old of yarns ??



This is the yarns found under my mother's bed, they are bought at 1986 and let's celebrate their 22 years old of birthday. They are Jaeger DK with Alpaca and still in good quality condition. Oh, I have ground to buy more and keep my yarns as long as I could. Only 6 balls are here and a open vest with no sleeve is knitted.

Nowaday, it seems quite popular to knit vest with upper and lower body in different patterns. So, for the lower part, I use st.st. pattern and "k and p" stitches for the upper part. The back is finished and I am going ahead to knit the front.

The vest looks great so far. Your mum must have stored that yarn very well to have it be in such great condition too, and I love the purple color.

My mom also had some unused Jaeger yarns that she bought in Hong Kong when she visited more than 20 years ago. They are in really good conditions as well. They are now in the hands of my sister. We are still trying to figure out how to use them up!
