With the new craft movement and all, I have looked longingly at all the gorgeous yarns out there wishing I knew I how to knit. For Christmas this year, my father painstakingly scanned in 2000 (out of how many more still left) slides from our childhood and sent all 4 of his children a DVD with the first years. The slide scanning technology is so great, it makes the slides look like brand new photos, the color is still so amazing. I haven't looked through all 2000 (my husband drew the line when we hit around 600 when I was about 13 or 14 wearing short mini skirts and sporting long long hair) BUT this one photo just struck me. My sister and I KNITTING! I love this photo!

Since she's missing front teeth, I'm guessing she's about 6 which would make me 8 which would make this 1967-68. Don't you love the curtains? And the upholstered chair? And the boots!?!?

Anyway, I thought I would share. I wish I could remember that knitting thing now!
