I was only a child at the time, but, now that I have my own children to dress up, it has become apparent that I was unusally influenced by the Arran knitting patterns of the Seventies…
Takes me back remembering all the jumpers we used to wear when we were kids! My mum still has the pattern book she bought when she was preggas with me! AND even better… she still uses it! xo
God, that’s very cool. I would love to be able to knit those chunky winter woollies myself. Maybe by the time I have grandkids… xxx
I love them too!! Never knew what they were called but have always loved them. Also, that’s another fab photo of your beautiful children. 🙂 can’t wait to see some shots from that photo shoot you won. Was great to see you yesterday, hope you managed to fit lunch in before meeting up with the girls. xo
Thank you! Shaun has one of those sweaters that his mum kniited him when he was a teenager and it goes down to his knees. Maybe I should start a whole new Arran sweater blog?? I knitted a chunky purple-with-flecks-of-rainbow sweater as a student. With a bit of help with the casting on and off from my grandmother. It was tecnhically a success, aesthetically a disaster, but I can’t bring myself to throw it away as it may well be the only sweater I produce in my lifetime. It was great seeing you too. Hope Dexter’s sniffle has cleared up and you’re getting through unpacking all those boxes. Will let you see the results of the photo shoot as soon as I’ve got my hands on a pic. xxx p.s Arran’s a wee island off the coast of Scotland and they make great cheddar cheese too. xxx
