These make me smile a lot. I've been trawling through dozens of images of old knitting patterns and magazines that I need to get my bottom into gear and add to my shop. Oddly enough it makes me want to Abba flick my fringe and don knitwear in shades of pea green, maybe dressing Ozzy in a pair of woollen dungarees for good measure. And what is it with knitwear anyway? I always get sucked in to how comfy and snuggly it looks but the reality of wool is 2 days of itching like a bugger wearing it followed by despair as it shrinks in the washing machine and returns from the tumble drier in a size that wouldn't even fit a newborn. Wool - the middle ages temptress...

A post purely to indulge in some sixties nostalgia, I apologise for the lack of any actual purpose, no hints, no tips, no ideas - just pure unadulterated woollen sixties shizzle!
