Tonight at our knitting guild we got the inside scoop on lining a sweater.
It makes them sooo warm and Ann showed us that it's easier than I thought. The trick is to make the lining bigger than the sweater so when the sweater stretches across your shoulders the lining will go with it. This is Ann with one of her mohair sweaters on.
And her daughter-in-law, Laurie, with another gorgeous one on. This is Laurie's winter coat. Ann brushes the mohair inside and out with a hair brush before putting the lining in. She makes all of these without a pattern and each one has a different colour design using beads and shiny yarn or whatever takes her fancy.
They are beautiful, soft and very warm. Such talent.
