Welcome to another week of Adventures In Stitchcraft!
In 1937, fashions were becoming more tubular and natural in shape. Evening wear was long, jewellery was chunky and fox fur was popular.
Just like the long-line knitted suit in the February 1937 issue of Stitchcraft.
Accessories and shoes.
And how is the knitting coming along, I hear you ask? Maybe best not to ask! I am yet to cast on, although I have re-sized the whole pattern - hopefully correctly. I have located one skein of the blue yarn and I know I have a second one somewhere (it says so in my Ravelry stash!), I cannot seem to find it. One of the problems of having, dare I say, too much yarn?! I am definitely on a mission this year to NOT let myself buy any more yarn and to use up what I have. Ravelry's stash feature is very useful for this.
I will definitely locate that skein this week and have some progress to report next week - promise!
I will leave you with some images from another 1937 classic movie, Heidi starring Shirley Temple.
The grandfather is wonderful, just as I pictured him when reading the book.
