Everything Old is New Again

Firstly, a heartfelt thankyou to all who have left messages. Due to a very weak internet connection at the present address, I have been unable to reply to comments and visit blogs.

During the winter months, many fanciful creations for little ones have come off the knitting needles, some of which I would love to share.

This is a little waistcoat/vest, worked in coloured bands of simple Fair Isle - sized for a 2 to 3 year old boy. Made from 8ply wool on 4.50mm needles. The styling was inspired by a vintage look, but given a modern touch in the large wooden buttons and colouring.
