It seems a few of you are lucky owners of some of these precious Heirlooms of our Past.
Me, well there was a LARGE group of families who all seemed to being having girls, so we just kept passing our child's 'best' clothing around n around n around
Funny that I never kept anything, especially as I love "old things" :-)
Just thought you might like an update on my "Old is New" project
The completed set is from Patons 1283 Heirloom 4ply Collection
The yarn is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l Cleckheaton Bamboo 4ply
So soft, lovely sheen and such beautiful drape (which I hope you can see below)
I have decided to set myself a little challenge
To complete at least one pattern from each of my vintage pattern books
As you will see, I will be picking the baby patterns, mainly because they are so quick and oh so cute
Anyone else feel up to the challenge of digging around in your old patterns and completing one, or two, or .......?
No rules, anything goes
Ok, sorry - one rule
Please blog about it so that I can see your lovely projects
And find those lovely old pattern books
And just another quickie here
This lot is off to Tassie
To be made up with other squares into blankets for "Betty's City Kitchen"
This is a challenge on Knit 4 Charities A-Long
