Site Changes Coming Soon….

Dear Vintage Knitters,

Thank you for visiting my site from all over the world. It hasn’t been updated with new posts lately as I decided I needed a way to drive more donations to the UK Muscular Dystrophy charity I’m trying to support. Finally a way has turned up, where to see the pattern you will first be invited to donate and if you can’t afford it you can add zero in the amount box.

To make it clear, in a year there have only been 67 donations, but on just one day in February 2021 was around 300 visitors and 3,000 – 4,000 page views. Hence the new plan to nudge some more donations.

To everyone who is subscribed to get email updates for each new post via this site or Bloglover- I’m planning to add 100 new patterns so apologies in advance for the amount of notifications. In the time since I last posted, myself and my assistant have already photographed and scanned lots and lots of vintage patterns, so they are ready to post as soon as the new system is working.

I’ll also be moving some menus around too as the number one thing I want to get from a stack of vintage patterns, is to narrow them down to my size. The choice to find patterns by era will be elsewhere on the screen (probably at the bottom if you are viewing on a mobile). Also I want to highlight some basics that are ideal for newer knitters or are timeless like a basic crew neck jumper.

Any requests or suggestions please leave a comment on this post.

Love Caroline x

    Sorry. Could I donate with Paypal or a card? I don’t want to put my account number on internet.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing all those wonderful pattern!
    It’s good to hear that there will be a PayPal-option with the new system 🙂
