Over Christmas I knitted a scarf, just for fun really. I fancied doing something useful with my hands while they weren't shovelling food into my mouth, plus it had been a while since I had picked up the needles. Knitting the scarf has made me get the bug again and I've decided that I want to try and work up to more complicated projects. Those long time Yesterday Girl readers among you may remember my adventures with the 3 Hour Sweater first and second attempts, which I was quite proud of and still wear might I add.
So, considering two years has past since then, and in that time my style has evolved to a more defined 50s look, I think I have found my next project! These pictures just epitomise the style I adore, girly, sexy and fun, and with the added novelty element....and what a name! It's a shame the picture is black and white because I would love to know what colour it was in the original pattern book.
The modern reproduction featured is a bubblegum pink, and I think I am going to stick with that or maybe a light blue. Not quite sure yet, and I can't afford to buy any wool until pay day so I have time to change my mind 100 times yet!
I will keep you posted with my progress, but I am no expert, so it may take me a while...
The pattern is in this book which you can buy here
