I have finished another blanket. They are now getting a bit out of hand now, after all there are only so many blankets you can use on a regular basis!
I used King Cole Flash in Summer Fruit and just knitted in garter stitch until I ran out of yarn.
I have recently got a car of my own and really needed a car blanket so this blanket does have a use!
I knitted a jumper! I used a relatively straight forward 1970s pattern and Stylecraft Special DK. Here are some silly pictures of me wearing the jumper.
On a recent visit to the British Museum we were looking at the Assyrian Lion Hunt reliefs (668-631 BC) when I noticed this guy amongst all the hunters and dead lions.
He is definitely carrying giant knitting needles and big balls of yarn!
There are some vintage knitting patterns available in my shop now. You could make them up for an authentic piece of vintage knitwear, or they would look nice framed.
