Vintage Yarn

My dear friend Colleen is downsizing her house and getting rid of her yarn stash. She's been telling me about this yarn haul, and we finally had a chance to meet up for the yarn pass-off. Just LOOk at this haul!
Vintage yarn that she tells me she hasn't touched in years.
What to make? So many possibilities!
And look, she also included a pile of magazine books and patterns. I love old school patterns, I find them way easier to understand.
She put in a couple of UFOs, like this thick wool sweater. Or maybe it's a vest?
And look at this project.
She started it maybe 20 years ago and joked that I should finish it. I was eager to complete it but then I saw the pattern - it's WAY to hard for me! Well maybe not. But my gosh, look at that detail.
Her intarsia stitches are perfect! I should take a crack at finishing it because it would be a freakin' masterpiece!
