Well I never… I’ve finally had a good knitting pattern haul! My Charity shops have been lacking somewhat on the knitting pattern from for some while, so just imagine my amazement when I came across some more to add to my collection. I really was pleased as punch. :)

The first bundle came from a local charity shop. I had nearly given up hope of ever finding a single old pattern in there ever again. Then, on Thursday, I noticed they had sorted out the patterns into neat folders (reminiscent of my own), and I thought to myself “oh go on, it will only take a jiffy to look in them”….and low and behold, I found these lurking in the back!
Five of the Eight patterns from the charity haul....

The second bundle came from some lovely dealers who I know from my flea fair trips. (Many a treasure I have had from them- including my baby’s gas mask and set of WI sewing books.) I had a quick look at the pile, pulling out the three that I wanted, and then I was shown a little wartime cracker that was put away under the table…..I had to have it!
How about some woollies for the convalescing man?
Stump Sock, anyone? Certainly a pattern to make you think eh!

My third and final bundle, consisting of a whopping 21 patterns, came from a charity stall. I also found Mammy a lovely pair of cherry red 40’s shoes from the same stall, and they were a bargain at £5! I’m. Not. At. All. Envious. Still, I can’t complain as I went on to find all the following patterns….
(there are some cracking designs in the Home Chat booklet)
I have designs on knitting these cami-knickers...
I was really pleased about finding this one. I have a scanned copy of it already, but nothing beats owning the original!
What can I say? Last week was obviously my week for finding patterns!
Must go, sunshine and some sorting awaits....
P.S. Sorry for the large amount of pictures… I had to scan them all because my camera batteries need charging!
