My new land girl vest. Not exactly an eBay steal but worth every penny. Actually it's still cheaper than buying a new one. My wonderful mother is currently in a knitting frenzy! She's been brave enough to tackle a vintage patten from the book Stitches in Time. She's started with a vest which we thought would be easiest but it turns out that those forties lasses really knew how to wield a knitting needle because it's been bit hard and I know there's been a fair amount of unravelling going on. But isn't it pretty?
I'm sure mum will want me to emphasize that this is a work in progress! But the end is in sight. Now we've just got to choose some buttons! Then I really, really need a new cardigan. I wish I knew how to knit but feel i've left my run a bit late. I really should have started while mum lived in the city.
