Knitting Advice, circa 1970

Holly, a fellow knitter in St. Paul, found the following
long-forgotten letter in a knitting book over the weekend:

My favorite line is:
"I could have made this more clear but your mother said not to make it too easy. Love, Dad"

This letter was written well over 30 years ago.
Holly's parents are in their 80's. Currently, both are active knitters.
