On Friday I said I would reveal the identity of the person hiding in the wool pile today, (see previous post) but, oh no, I’ve gone and left her at my Mum’s house this weekend so she is unavailable for a photo shoot! Drat!
Well, while she finds her way back home, here’s something else instead.
Hooray! My copy of the new Susan Crawford knitting book ‘A Stitch in Time’ arrived this week.
I’ve been waiting for this forever; I pre-ordered it before publication what seems like a year ago, and publication was delayed and delayed. But at last it’s arrived. It’s a monster volume and full of lovely vintage knitting patterns from the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s, all adapted for today’s yarns and knitting methods.
The projects are labours of love as most of them are knitted in 4ply, so they will take a long time to complete. I’d never get to the end of this knitted pinafore, though I might have a go at the jumper.
I think this one is my favourite
or this one
Fortunately both choices are summery so I have a long time to get them done!
