Two Sweaters – $119,000

1 January 2013

I’m starting the New Year with a blog about knitting at last – not mine but  Aung San Suu Kyii’s, believe it or not.  A woman not normally associated with needlecrafts.

Last week, two sweaters knitted by her were auctioned in Burma and raised about $119,000 for her political party. She made them when she was living in England about 25 years ago. 

The full story is here.
