Hey, sorry it’s been so long since I posted, but the popularity of the blog hasn’t wained in my long winter break, which is marvelous! I have a whole stack of patterns to share, some that I own and some that I scanned at the British Library. There’s going to be a little delay while I sort out the confused digital folder I shoved them all into, as I need to check I’m not accidentally posting the same ones again.

In the mean time, does anyone have any finished jumper or works in progress from Sunny Stitcher scanned patterns? I’d love to see some pictures!

And has anyone else been drooling over ITV’s Home Fires season two (on PBS In America, see the picture above). So much great 1940’s knitwear. The Vintage Knitter has posted about it, and has been investigating which patterns were used. I’d like to give her a round of applause for the hard work and superior vintage knitting pattern spotting!

  1. Lovely to have you back. Just love your blog and the fabulous vintage patterns. I too have been watching Home Fires and drooling over the knitwear;-)

  2. Good to see you back. I’ve gone mad with the “A Popular Model 30s Ladies Yoke Cardigan” pattern I downloaded from your site. I’ve knit it up in burgandy ( http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Bridieboo/a-popular-model-30s-ladies-yoke-cardigan ) and in blue ( http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Bridieboo/a-popular-model-30s-ladies-yoke-cardigan-in-blue ), using a super bulky yarn for a big comfy cardie. It’s a rare thing for me to finish a project but I managed to get both cardigans completed! Thank you for that pattern, I love it.
