Recently I have favoured the activity of crocheting over knitting. However with a new arrival expected soon in my family, I decided to knit something. The pattern I chose is from Woman’s Weekly Treasury for 1985. It has instructions in two sizes for a pretty jacket and bootees in garter stitch, stocking stitch and slip stitch.
Having used it previously I was confident that the pattern would be successful. In any case Woman’s Weekly has a very good reputation for knitting patterns.
The magazine is still in production with an online presence. I have signed up to their email newsletters and been impressed by the variety of patterns offered, some of which are free.
It has been a busy week with the outing I described on Sue’s words and pictures, singing in a concert, going for a walk with friends and other regular activities. Craft group meets alternate weeks and this was the one. That’s my excuse for a short post with one photo.
The yarn I used was Robin Bonny Babe four ply and the buttons from Milward.
I do not have any association with any of the companies I have mentioned in this post.
