The yarn is on order from Bendigo Woollen Mills and once it arrives, I will knit the gauge swatch and re-size the pattern per the re-sizing instructions I posted about earlier. Here is the link again.
So for now, I will share some more pages from this lovely issue.
I love this pattern, called Fir Tree.
And imagine, a whole book about mending! I would love to get hold of a copy of The Art and Practice of Mending.
Winter and embroidery sounds fine to me! A cup of tea, a warm fire and some craft work sounds like the perfect rainy winter's day.
And some of the homewares featured in this issue.
|A knitted rug|
|I love blackwork and Assisi work|
|I like the embroidered bag.|
And if you fancy some 1933 pudding recipes, here they are! We are heading into cold weather, and we are having pudding or dessert every night now. So I am going to give some of these recipes a try. Coconut and Orange Pudding and the pictured Brown Sponge Pudding both sound delicious.
Have a lovely week and next time we will be moving to 1934!
So get ready for lots of historical info. This is a particular interesting era, looking back, as we can see the world was, unfortunately, heading for war and there did not seem to be a solution to head it off.
