Crochet clothing from yesteryears

I asked mom if she could remember how many balls of yarn it took to make a 4year old girl’s cardigan. She thought it would take about 3 balls…depending on the type of stitch used. Then she asked if I remember that she used to make a number of crochet clothing for me. Of course I remember! I even have one of them.

So I opened the box in my closet where I kept my old clothes with extra sentimental value. Lo and behold! I had not one but two of them! Here’s my favourite:

A blue sleeveless vest. I used to wear this over my tees when I go out with mom & dad.

The other one that I kept but have totally forgotten is this lovely shrug (I think that’s what it’s called):

I usually wore this with a brooch to keep it in place. Too bad I don’t seem to have any photo of myself wearing them.
