Although my knitting repertoire is pretty limited, I do have a growing collection of patterns (I've only just discovered the online sources such as Ravelry). A few years ago, I realised that charity shops are an excellent source of needles and patterns, although you do have to ask about needles because they seem to be an 'under the counter' item!
Increasingly, I am finding that the types of pattern I'm drawn to are not necessarily for garments I actually want to make, but rather for their comedy value. Going through my folder today to find a pattern for some super soft baby wool I bought today, I had a little giggle and thought I'd share the best with you.
|As a firm Blue Peter Fan, I just had to have this. I thought she was so cool when I was 10!|
Incidentally, I don't actually know how to crochet yet, unless you count the ability to make a very long chain; it is a skill I'm hoping to master soon.
If you fancy using any of the patterns here please let me know and I'll pop them in the post. I'd love to see them interpreted for the 21st century!
Thanks for stopping by,
