Knit for Victory!!

Not much exciting to tell you on the knitting front. I’m still knitting Hildegard and slogging up the front – One side done up to the shoulder and just starting the other side of the V neck….I’d forgotten what a time consuming pattern it was!

You can also see how the ball of silk just falls apart as you are working too – a bit annoying but it is because it’s silk – all silky soft and slippery 😉

I’ve also had “Mother’s Day Duties” to perform. For a treat, Mum and I visited The Imperial War Museum – they had a fantastic exhibition called “The Children’s War” about the effect of WW2 on children in Britain. For Mum (who was a war baby) it was a huge nostalgia trip – I, of course, got excited by all the references to knitting!

I had to take a photo of this poster to show you all!

Surely there’s a sock yarn company out there who will want to use this?? 😀

    Wow! The stitch definition with that silk yarn is amazing. Thank you for the inspiration. I have the Stitionary, now I just need to find a copy of that pattern. And if you’d like to keep your yarn in check you can put the wound ball in a sandwich size zip-top bag and zip all but about an inch for the yarn to come out of. Nice and neat. I use if for my sock yarn so it doesn’t get messy rolling around in the bag with other yarns. Have a great day.

    That is such a pretty stitch and the yarn and colour you’ve chosen show it off really well. And love the poster ! My mum (a war teenager) can’t believe I knit socks – she’s now classed me as an official granny buggins lol
