I love that Yesterknits site - I have got one of their free patterns, I think it is called evening bolero or something and I'm dying to knit it - I was thinking of doing it in a really brightly coloured yarn for the winter to brighten things up a bit. I think that cross over top is gorgeous - you should deinfately do it - if you use modern yarns and as you say alter the sleeves slightly - it will look fabulous - very glamorous indeed. If you do start a vintage knitalong let me know, I'll definately join in - as long as I can finish a couple of my current six projects on the go first !


A Retro-KAL sounds great - I'd definitely be up for that! :)

And you bought Vintage Knits!! I've been tempted with that book for ages now but I have promised myself that I won't buy any more pattern books until I have finished at least two of my WIPs and pipeline projects...


Quel dommage que le modèle de Phildar ne te plaise pas une fois tricoté. Cela m'arrive parfois. Est-ce le point avec une aiguille n°9 qui n'est pas beau ?
Mon mari est venu passer deux jours en vacances avec moi et il avait dans son sac ton colis. Merci ! J'ai feuilleté très vite les magazines qui me plaisent mais il me faudra plus de temps pour les lire vraiment car mon anglais n'est pas vraiement "fluent" !.
A très bientôt


It's lovely Francoise. You could change the sleeves, make them less puffy at the top, quite easily, I imagine. Not sure if I'd be up for a KAL at the moment, need to finish a few things, but I just know that loads of people would be interested!



I have the Vintage knits too... and the yarn to make the one on the cover. One of these days. I love the vintage knits patterns, they really are gorgeous and women had the most amazing waists in those days...


Like the idea of a Retro Knit! One could say tht many of my knits are retro - it's been a long time since I started some of them....

Chamomile looks great - have you worn it a lot?


that crossover sweater is lovely - it reminds me a bit of an orange crossover top in this summer's Rebecca, only that is a sleeveless version.
