Did you get lots of nice knittery things for Christmas? Was your stocking bulging with bamboo needles and long-coveted yarns? I do hope so!
I was really happy to find these among my presents...
They're chock full of wonderful stitch suggestions and the kind of fitted jumper patterns that were popular in the 1940s. I can see me trying out several in the new year.
Don't you just love an inspirational present? A present that has the potential to continue giving pleasure for months and possibly years? I bet 'Jennifer' - who received one of these books as a present 'with Mummy's love' in 1943 - never thought they'd still be in use more than sixty years later.
