At the age of 16, Holli spent her savings on a Ralph Lauren argyle sweater and decided she wanted a pair of gloves to match. A dedicated do-it-yourselfer, she headed to the LYS and found perfectly matching Kroy fingering yarn and a Patons pattern. It didn’t even enter her mind that it might be difficult to knit gloves worked in intarsia. She just did it.
Years later at a knitting retreat, Holli’s mother was describing Holli’s precociousness as a knitter to the gathering and her pride that Holli would presume to knit argyle gloves and succeed. It was the first time Holli had seen her accomplishment through her mother’s eyes and recognized that her flair for knitting might be notable.
