Just look what my darling mom got me!
No, she didn’t make it (she doesn’t work with crochet thread that much anymore).
She found it at her local thrift store for a ridiculous price of five dollars. She thought I might like it.
Being a crochet lace fanatic, I absolutely love it! But the best part is that it fits me perfectly.
I also like how it looks with the sleeves rolled up.
I wonder what the story behind this gorgeous cardigan is. Who was the person that made it? How did it end up in a thrift store? Those things I will never know, but one thing I can tell for sure: whoever made this beauty is (or perhaps was) at the top of crochet art.
The cardigan is made of small motives that were very neatly joined together along the way. There is not a single seam on the entire piece! The stitches are neat and even, and the crochet thread that was used is thinner than the common size ten. To make such piece requires not only superb crochet skills, but lots of patience and determination.
Thank you so much for your warm comments on my previous post. I read and re-read them; your kind words really lifted up my spirits.
