Book: A stitch in time vol 1
Original: Womens weekly sept 1936
Yarn: Annell cotton 8
(Warning: This here will be heavy on non-knitters)
So I finished this about a month ago, but only put them on ravelry and blogged about it now.
The pattern is from a stitch in time volume 1, but the original pattern dates from 1936, womens weekly. So it's a pre-wartime pattern.

Instead of the glass buttons I wanted to place on them I went for wooden I found at the market.
Alas...what can I say...I am a sucker for wooden buttons. It's indeed getting quite out of hand.
|Ah! That's better!|
Anyway I really love the stitch pattern in this sweater, it's why I wanted to make it in the first place. I'm happy how it turned out, need to make me some more skirts to go with it though.
