Oldies but Goodies

These sweaters happened to be in one of my stash drawers when I was searching today. I must be saving them for a grandchild because they are toddler sized so obvioulsy knit sometime ago.

I still have the pattern for this green one. The entire yolk is cables as well as the wrist ribbing and the waist. The pattern has 1989 written on it. Probably wool/acrylic.
Same with this buttery yellow a toddler size as well. It also has cables at the wrist and waist and on the front although a different pattern. The neck fastens with a button on the right side. It's all cotton.

This isn't that old of course. It's Fiber Trends Leaf Lace Shawl. The first shawl I knit and it's in Knitpicks Sock Memories merino fingering weight. I love it although it's a bit on the small side if you like a larger shawl. I'm wearing it right now. It's amazing the warmth generated to your shoulders and back from a nice shawl. I remember not long before I knit this I wondered what all the fuss was over shawls!!
