This is my new favorite knitting book. I got it for £3 at a local vintage shop and it has SO MANY patterns in it. Sweaters for adults, jackets and shorts for children, tons of accessories. It's amazing. I can't find a year on it. I'm thinking 1940s?
I loved this onesy in the corner, as I'm a sucker for any pattern with buttons at the shoulders. The best part of the book is that the patterns are called "recipes", and the needle recommendations are old English sizes. Good thing I know the difference from working in a knitting shop!
Here it is, made up, in cotton I got from the John Lewis sale. I think the entire project cost about £4, and I'm so please with it. The recipe was perfect!
P.S. This is the last week to enter this month's giveaway. I'll be choosing a winner on Saturday, and posting a November's contest next week. Good luck!
