Edwardian French Drawers. They sound a little exotic, don’t they? All the pictures I’ve seen have featured very shapely, slender ladies sporting shaped flounces frothing at the hem with lace trim.
In this week’s video, I investigate the original contents of my antique steamer trunk. Join me as I view family photos from the Edwardian age!
You would think I’d be done with lace, but you would be wrong.
In this week’s video, I delve into the world of vintage knitting patterns to make myself a Victorian Shetland Lace Scarf.
Just show notes from the video this time. We’ve had three deaths in the family over the past 3 months, culminating in the passing of my father-in-law.
Casting on the Crumb cardigan by Andi Satterlund. It will be the first sweater knit by me, for me, and I’m excited! This week, I knit a gauge swatch or two.
I find that the humble sock is a perfect project. It’s small enough to be portable, and it’s not so large as to overheat a knitter in summer. They’re suitable for chatting over a cup of tea, or an evening glass of wine.
My fabric stash is minuscule compared to my Mum’s, so she granted me access to the treasure trove that is her cotton bin. It’s a huge Rubbermaid tub that’s full of swatches and remnants. Some of the contents date back almost 40 years.
