Knitted jumper, 1974

Knitted jumper, 1974

In 1974, when one young woman discovered she was pregnant, she began work on a knitted jumper for her child. She also bought booties and a bonnet in anticipation of the birth.

Her son Michael was adopted following his birth in 1974, and she did not complete the jumper. The belt for the jumper remains on the knitting needles she used to knit the jumper.
