Jean - Wrap Stitch Ribbon Sweater

Jean and her fan club

Jean - another view

Jean knits and knits and most of the time we at the Friday morning knitting group get to see her work in progress. Today she quietly brings out a ribbon sweater (that we’ve not seen before) which she is about to assemble…the knitting is done…now time for the dreaded seaming and weaving in the loose ends. We “pounce” on this new garment and want to know more. It’s a wrap-stitch ribbon sweater inspired when she visited her life-long friend – knitting guru Barbara Scott.

During the 15 years that I have known Jean she has knit numerous beautiful sweaters, vest, cardigans, scarves, blankets, baby clothes…she knits. Ellen K of our knitting group says it for all us.

“Jean, what can I say.  You’re my knitting hero!  Everything you make fits you perfectly–how do you do it?  You’re new garment is lovely, as are you.”
