This is a sweater my aunt worked on 10 years ago. She doesn't really knit anymore, so she gave it to me so I can use the yarn for a project!

I really liked the collar of the sweater though, hopefully I can find a pattern to figure out how to knit something like that.

My aunt also gave me these knitting needles. Some of them belonged to my grandma and a few belonged to my great-grandma.

This is my loop knitting sample! Loop scarf for the dog!

Sometimes I forget my aunt and uncle are working artists. But they are and here are their studios/workplaces!

Aunt's sunny work room:

Uncle's screen printing/glass making factory:

So, I got to visit all three art schools in Taiwan.
