This weeks post is a bit late, we had a few days away!
Remember the eighties? There were a more than just a few really awful trends!
These were pretty tame compared to some I found in the stack of old pattern books I have been accumulating.
I remember helping customers with our own variation of the pink vest. The one we did used 2 balls of a mohair blend and a pair of 000 or 10 mm needles! Turns out my friend Julie, who I met 20 years ago, remembers going into Rickaby's and purchasing the yarn to many of those vests. I probably helped her at least one of the times, we were both a lot younger then.
What does the Yarn shop owner do on vacation?
I started a new project!
You know how when you pack your knitting and you take as many projects you think you can finish and then you add 'a just in case' project? What did I do? Started that one instead, leaving the others to be finished when we got home!
See you soon!
