All my family, from my great grandmother on, has been involved in one form of handicrafts or another. All the materials, patterns, needles etc have then been passed on to the next generation.

As a result, I have a collection of old knitting patterns dating from the 1940's. Some even have pictures of garments modelled by Roger Moore. Even James Bond has to start somewhere!

This jumper was knitted following one of the patterns that had once belonged to my grandmother and even though the pattern is over 40 years old, it was a pleasure to knit and to wear. I really liked the delicate look achieved by using 4 ply yarn. Made a change and quite an adjustment after chunky wool!
