That's Generosity for You*

Awhile back, one of my friends passed along some wips that she had inherited (at least I think that's the story) to another friend, with the instructions to "do whatever you want with them." 

The friend that received them really appreciated them, but was never quite certain what to do with them.  So, about a month ago, she passed them on to me.


That's right, 2 large bags full of lovely wips and all the supplies needed to complete them - including the needles.

The bag on the left contains 3 sweaters and a baby blanket.  Most of the knitting is completed on all of the projects, and the white sweater on the right has all of the pieces completely knitted and some of the seaming done.
The other bag contains another 5 sweaters and a baby blanket, most of which are nearly completed as well (the red sweater up front only wants seaming to be finished, for example).  

The interesting thing about these sweaters is that they have that boxy, '80s retro look going on, and they are all knit in pieces.  Even the neck is knit separately and then sewn on - a new thing for me.

So what will I do with all these?  Finish them, of course!  And then find some one to fit them - à la Elizabeth Zimmerman.

* Bonus points if you can name the book/movie that this title comes from.

Hmmm.... Let's see if I got this one right.... Could it be from The Pride And Prejudice?

Can't wait to see you finish these. She is going to love to see someone do something with them.

Ding! Ding! Ding! You got it in one. Your prize? The feeling of success in knowing you were right. ;)

I am going to try to have one of the sweaters finished and brought to knitting within the next couple of weeks. It will be nice to see them finally getting finished.

Gotta love a classic book! Can't wait to see the sweaters getting done. See you this weekend, I hope.
