I finished the first skein of Lorna’s Laces Lion and Lamb on my corrugator scarf it is about 30 inches long. Sad news is, I thought I had a second skein. Turns out, I have Lorna’s Laces sock weight, not Lion and Lamb. Sigh. It is times like these that I really wish I had a job so I could just rush out and buy the skein of yarn I desperately need RIGHT NOW! But, alas, the corrugator scarf will have to wait.
Son number 2 sent me a surprise! It arrived today and I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone! (Teary eyed because my son was in a thrift store and thought of his Mama when he saw a knitting book. How cool is that!)
The book was published in 1972 by Octopus Books Limited in London. It has 80 patterns and lots of awesome 1972ish pictures! Here are a few of my favorites:
Don’t you just love the sideburns? My daddy had sideburns like that! I love the scarf, hat and purse pattern on the third shot. I just might have to make those!
Check out this massive, huge, gigantic spool of yarn that was gifted to me! I have no idea what I will do with it. Because it is thin decorative yarn, I will need to mix it with another yarn. This photo is NOT blown up. This yarn spool IS this huge! It weighs like 4 lbs! Any ideas out there, what should I do with it???
