Mixing it up

I had planned to make this into a couple of posts, but decided I just didn't have the time, so here you have it, a bit of everything.

As most of you will be coming here for the WIPs I had better do those first.  Work progresses and each project is getting some attention.

Laurie's ten stitch


Car seat blanket

Rachel's long top

First side of a tea cosy for the YOT pot!!
Next, my sister in law gave me these vintage magazines on Sunday, we did have a laugh, they date back to 1971/72, goodness some of the fashions.  Though we did agree, with a change of yarn some of them could work.  Here is a sample


can you imagine a knitted trouser suit!?

We liked the blue top

Thought this would work with leggings

Like this but don't have the figure for it!  In fact don't think I ever did

Rufus would like the colour
Finally, I cannot believe a year has gone by since I posted photos of some these flowers, and here they are in bloom again. The year is flying past, autumn clothes are in the shops.

  3. Love the magazines, I have a few that are similar that an aunt gave me years ago. I hate throwing out patterns.
