Purple Tweed Indeed

Once upon a time ago when my mother was young, she knitted herself this very heavy this purple tweed jumper.

And once all the pieces were knitted, she discovered that it wasn't wide enough.

Did she panic? Maybe a little, I wasn't there to witness.

Did she find a solution? Yes, she inserted a rib gusset up both sides of the jumper and partially along the sleeves.

I call that clever. My mother is a resourceful woman.

Mum and I had a lovely time digging these jumpers out for their recent photo shoot.

While this jumper may not be as old or as patched as Dad's, it's still going!
