I think this model is Peggy Chester. I was alerted on Instagram, that Tickety Boo Tupney had identified the name of a knitting pattern model (that I’ve previously shared pictures of) and shared it in this blog post. I have lots of patterns modelled by Peggy in my collection, so I was really happy to learn her name.
Here is a better picture of her, from an earlier post. Do you think it is the same lady as above?
Anyway, on with the gloves, socks and cap. Aren’t they lovely? I can totally envision a future in which I knit them and never actually get around to doing the embroidery though. They are knitted in 3 ply yarn, originally turquoise with black stitching.
