Knitted Memories

I knitted this for my son while I was waiting for him to be born.  He’s 24 now and  built this blog for me this past Mother’s Day.  I remember knitting this set.  I had a lot of trouble with the intarsia tumbling blocks.  1-2-3-4-5, with 6 on the back. Intarsia is hard for me, and not much fun. Knitted patterns use the technique quite a bit in children’s clothing. A lot of work, but well worth the effort.  Like kids.  The last two photos are  my son, when he and this knitted set were both brand new.

  1. Thanks so much. I’ve looked for the pattern to give proper attributation and can’t locate it anymore. I’ve checked on Ravelry and can’t find it there either. It was likely a Phildar, or possibly Pingouin, baby-only booklet, circa 1985–since that’s what I was knitting from back then.
