I Have Loved & Lost
I won these patterns on eBay a couple of weeks ago, at a great price, but they seem to have got lost in the post. The seller refunded my payment, but I would have paid the money again just to get the patterns. I was really keen to knit the one on the left with the all over design, and the rose garland sweater is also lovely. Sigh.
I think I may have found the thing I want to collect - 1940s Fair isle patterns. There are some amazing vintage patterns out there, and I love to have the original pattern rather than a copied version/pdf, which some sellers seem to make a good living from selling, incidentally! It's just typical that the one I really wanted to knit has eluded me, but I have banned myself from buying anything else on eBay this month. Maybe in September I'll start looking again. In the meantime I have a shawl to knit, dresses to finish and the Rooibos sewalong to begin. It's not like I will be idle until then.
Have a nice weekend
