We’ve been going through boxes and tossing things like crazy. We hope after 7 years of living in an apartment (or at least this one) that this summer might find us living somewhere else. We shall see about that, but just in case, we are downsizing big time.
It’s amazing what you find in boxes that you forgot you had. There was one box labeled just “Cameras” We found alot of stuff inside, like:
My very first game counsel. The original Pong (probably from around 1975) I loved playing this game! Last I remembered it still worked. But it takes a special connector and 4 size D batteries so I haven’t’ been able to try it out.
Then there were the old cameras. Some were made out of what must be steel. They were so heavy. There was one camera that still has film in it, with pictures taken (I remember it being my child hood camera we used for still photos) Makes me wonder what is on it!
We also have a reel to reel projector and old movies. But we have no empty reel so couldn’t try to watch them (and memory stirs that something might be broken on the projector… I think it did something like burn the tape last time) But some of the reels are labeled “Tina’s first Christmas, Birthday, and stuff like that…. wow)
Last but not least we found a box that had “Old blankets” listed on the side.
Looking inside I found this.
It looks familiar? I’ve seen it all over Blogland as the new and great
Mason Dixon dishcloth pattern.
I also found the pattern. It’s copyrighted 1992.
I remember making about 8 of these blankets in various colors around 1994. That was the last time I knitted for almost 11 years.
How the Old becomes New!
Just think, I was knitting ‘cool’ when ‘cool’ wasn’t ‘cool’ And interesting enough, I wasn’t knitting twisted knit like I did when I restarted in 2005. Odd. I must of untwisted them when purling.
