Introducing....Pattern Mondays!

(Note: only suitable for real men who play darts and drink beer)

Following the very positive response to the vintage pattern pictures I posted during November Knit Week, I have decided to make it a regular, weekly feature. Every Monday I will post a picture for your interest and amusement, to celebrate the weird and wonderful world of knitting patterns and pattern photography.

However I can't do this alone - I need your help, dear blog readers! If you have any pictures you'd like to share please get in touch using the comments or email me at You will of course be credited for your contributions. The pictures don't always have to be funny, just of interest in some way. Maybe they perfectly represent a particular era or show a childhood knitted item you particularly loved (or hated!). I'd love to hear any stories you might have about the pattern pictures you send.

I've already received my first pattern picture contribution, which I will be featuring next week, so be sure to check back next Monday.

  3. Heh, I can get on board with this! I'll try and remember next time I go through some of my patterns to send you any off-beat pictures. :)
