Knitting Fashions of the 1940s

Knitting Fashions of the 1940s

Well 1940 didn’t rhyme.  Ah, Knitting Fashions of the 1940s … I’ve had my eye on this book for ages and now it’s mine, all mine.  I’ve ordered some great jumper weight 2-ply from Jamieson & Smith, a wonderful Shetland wool specialist in Scotland, I’ve got my size 12 needles and I’m ready to go.  Sometimes it’s nice to knit up a vintage pattern knowing that someone has done the adapting for you, although I’m still lining up some originals … I think if you’ve got the patience to knit on small needles with fine wool you can make some wonderful garments which you just won’t see anywhere else.  Occasionally though I just need a quick fix for something quick and easy in between, so I’m knitting a small jumper for Lucas at the same time.
