a stitch in time

I knitted these sweaters in the 1980s from 'a stitch in time' by Jane Waller and Susan Crawford, patterns from the 20s -50s. The book is long gone, though I understand it is now reissued. Here is my granddaughter wearing them in 2010. Susan has an interesting blog 'just call me ruby' and is editor of 'knitonthenet', a terrific on line knitting magazine.

Its Thursday....so it must be Hermes day. This one I bought a church rummage sale over 30 years ago, before I knew what an Hermes was.


  1. Hi, thank you for your kind comment on my blog. There is more to come about Sweden and Norway, so please come back.

  2. Hello Jan,
    Wow, it is always great to see things knitted from A Stitch in Time. I love your Blackberry Stitch cardigan: that's one of my favourites. Many thanks for linking to us and to Susan's blog as well.

  3. Fashion keeps coming back. It's so nice to see that your granddaughter can wear something that you made 30 years ago!

  4. and something that was designed even before I was born...
