Well, there's some inspiration for Robyn! (see her 'sweater from hell')

These make all of the small things I've made so far pale into insignificance!

That's an intriguing pattern on the aqua one. It looks as if it demands some careful counting!

Thanks for the post, B - I look forward to more.

Thanks pea.... I have a cotton one on the go still waiting for me to stop making sugar flowers,to finish it!!!

By the way the cream one is a a silk mixture, only thing wrong with that is, it tend not to look so neat...still have not found the pattern....

These are beautiful. I AM inspired to finish my moss-stitch pain in the side. Just half a sleeve to go.

Dive just told me I could look at his blog, as he took some of my old patterns the other day, I must add that I knitted all three of those and wore them, in the days when I had good legs!and hasten to add I was over 30 when I did so, shameful!!!!!

Did you wonder at the time why Dive wanted to take those knitting patterns?!

I think it's fantastic that you made and wore those. There are plenty of old knitting patterns which haven't really survived the test of time, aren't there? I found this brilliant blog entry the other day. Perhaps there's some mileage in us knitting up and modelling some old patterns?!!!
