Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education.

{30 Years Ago In My Rose Sweater}


When this photo was taken 30 years ago by Pieter, I still was a very shy girl... That was 30 years ago! The world has taught me some lessons over the years, so I got cured of that. But what I wanted to show you here is my hand knitted Rose Sweater.The sweater is no more and I regret that I have no color photo of its beautiful roses. I've hand embroidered them over the knitting... Time was a different issue back than I guess!


The knitting pattern was in an older Dutch Ariadne magazine, from February 15, 1964... My Mom subscribed to it already in the 1950s and she did knit many a sweater from Ariadne patterns, she was a master in it. Also my paternal grandmother loved to knit and she had more time on her hands as my Mom with my six younger siblings to take care of, plus helping Dad in the greenhouses with the vegetables. From my Mom I've inherited this ability and it was also taught by the nuns to us when we entered first grade. I don't regret it; it is a wonderful thing to do. Since we live in Georgia, the need for woolen sweaters is very limited so I have not produced many here.


As a teen, I fell in love with it right away but I had trouble growing up to a size 10 or European size 40. When I knew I would never make it 'big' I had to redesign this sweater and knit it in thinner wool, to make it like a size 6 or 36 for me.


Will show you more handwork in the future.

  3. Du Liebe, mir scheint, Du warst schon immer eine "Rosenfreundin" :-) auch diese schönen Fotos sprechen für sich ... was für ein Glück, dass Dich Dein lieber Mann damals mit dem zauberhaften Pullover fotografiert hat, der sicherlich wegen seiner Muster nicht einfach zu stricken war ... und ich finde, Du siehst nicht nur ein wenig schüchtern, sondern schon ein bißchen stolz aus ... kein Wunder, bei so einem Prachstück !!
    herzliche Morgengrüße von der Rosabella ♥

  5. Breien: ik had er een haat/liefde verhouding mee. Ik deed 't graag, maar er kwam nooit iets draagbaars van de naalden ....

  6. Hei Mariette,
    Leuke foto laat je zien. In die tijd moest ik ook regelmatig iets voor school breien, alleen deed ik er lang over of oma moest het afmaken. Nu ik in Noorwegen woon en ik iedereen om mij heen zie breien en haken, ben ik ook maar eens voorzichtig met kleine dingetjes begonnen. Een trui of vest heb ik mij nog niet aangedurfd, want ik heb nu geen oma meer die het af kan maken.


    Groetjes Sandy

  7. Liebe Mariette,
    wie wunderschön und jung und ganz viel Charme!
    Auch der Rosenpullover passte sehr gut zu Dir!
    Schade, dass man nicht alles aufheben kann!
    Ein schönes Wochenende für Dich und einen ganz lieben Gruß
    Lilo

  9. Ein hübsches Mädel warst Du und etwas Scheu steht jeder jungen Frau gut, besser als ein allzu forsches Auftreten! HInter dem sich manchmal sogar Hochmut oder ein unangemessener Stolz verbirgt.

    Ach, der Pullover - ich glaube, das Magazin kenne ich - ich mochte solche Pullover auch sehr gern! Meine Schwester hat einen - zwar ganz andersartigen, aber doch auch bestickten Strickpullover angefertigt damals. Vielleicht finde ich das Foto wieder. Da sind viele unterschiedliche Pflanzen im Maschenstich aufgestickt.

    Da hatte Deine Mama aber zu tun mitl 6 oder 7? Kindern und noch einer Gärtnerei, wenn ich das jetzt richtig verstanden habe.

    Ja, und Rosen sind auch "meine" Blumen :-) Auch wenn ich andere natürlich auch sehr gerne mag.

    Liebe Grüße
