Wool Glorious Wool

From no blogging to lot of blogging, I have been busy behind the scenes, working hard to produce some wonderful sweaters in time for Vintage Vogue on 2nd October.

To get me really organised I had a wool shelf built at home, as I had bags of wool stacked against the wool in the bedroom, it really wasn't very pretty and I could not remember what wool I had. As you can see, my wool looks so much nicer out in the open, on show in all it's glorious colour.

I have just finished knitting a sweater for a nice lady in New York which is a pretty little 1950s sweater, one of my favourite designs and such a pleasure to knit. I love the vintage buckle and the turret pattern around the neckline and bottom.

On a 1950s theme, I have also been knitting some 1950s windcheaters, the pattern I have featured previously, I will have three of these to sell, all in different colourways. My favourite is a red and grey one as above. I am also knitting one for me to wear at the Fair.

I am looking forward to this weekend as we are going to Ramsey on Sunday which should be a really nice day out and a day for catching up with friends and traders that we know.

Well, must go now , off to work shortly.
