Hattie

I'm hard at work on my latest project, named Hattie. Not quite post-ready yet as there'll be a remake before I do.  There's been too many changes along the way to trust scribbles without a double-check.  Hattie (Harriet) was my grandmother's aunt, the youngest sibling of her mother Martha, born in 1888.  I was a teenager when our paths crossed; she was in her late 70s.  She appreciated my interest so I've got her knitting needles.  Hattie, the sweater, has a shawl collar created as a separate piece that extends around the neckline and down the bodice front as a vertical insert.
