Coronation Knits

Brag, brag , brag. This week I received my giveaway prize. A copy of Susan Crawford's new book 
'Coronation Knits. If truth be known I would have bought it anyway.

 I was determined to enter the draw on every site of the blog tour until I won, but, as luck would have it I was first time lucky when I entered on Helene's super blog about knitting in Iceland
BTW, all the blogs on the tour are on my regular reading list.

 As some of you may know I only knit from  vintage patterns and have long been a Susan Crawford and Jane Waller fan....

and besides, it gives me another opportunity to show you a sweater I knit in the 80s from  a 1940s pattern published in 'A Stitch in Time' vol 1 modeled here, a couple of years ago by my granddaughter.


  1. I keep meaning to buy this book, seeing as I wasn't so lucky in the prize draw stakes! I must remember when I get home from the US :) I have both A Stitch in Time books and they're just gorgoeus... x

  2. Congratulations Jan. I love that red cardy your grandaughter is wearing!

  3. Congratulations on such a great prize win Jan, lucky girl. I do love that red cardigan, as well as the lovely model. Hope all is well in your world.

  4. oooh - congrats! This is definitely right up your alley. I am holding onto a wee book that I am hoping to give you when I ever get to the market. It has your name written all over it!
