A week ago today I celebrated my 29th birthday and was spoilt with delightful stitching goodies from family, friends and colleagues alike. I thought I'd unashamedly
show off share some of them with you, as I'm sure you'll appreciate them as much as I do.
Beginner crochet supplies, cute fabric and the perfect card.
A sweet coat pattern – after much deliberation and despite seeing many lovely versions of the Minoru jacket, I think The Abbey Coat is much more me!
A pretty snazzy Cath Kidston knitting bag.
The piece de resistance!
A Stitch in Time Vol.1 is filled with stunning vintage knitting patterns from 1920 – 1949, that have been adapted to fit our modern bodies and that have been knitted up in modern yarns. As you can see from my post-it filled copy above, it's absolutely thrilling. It's steeped in interesting historical information and the quite frankly, the photographs are pure unadulterated filth! Yep, you heard me! Call me a pervert, but I've already spent hours pouring over this book and I've got Vol. 2 well within my sights.
Anyway, because you're a special bunch, I thought I'd treat you to a sneaky peak of a few of my favourite patterns from this divine book! Remember, this is just a small collection from this gem-ridden treasure.
Have any of you knitted from this book? I'd love to know! Suzy's recently knitted a very chic cardigan from it, making me even more eager to get stuck in!
