Good things: Friday knitting pattern

I don't usually like much from the 1960s ... I'm just not a fan of short skirts and synthetic fibres.


So I was pleasantly surprised when I found this tweedy looking cardigan last week.

Surprised that I like it. Surprised it was soft and warm and natural looking.

It just reminds me of long walks along English country lanes. Very Heartbeat really.

What do you think?

I like it but I'm not sure I would wear it...perhaps in a prettier color with a scarf to jazz it up. Although that would take away from the beautiful cabling..so no scarf but definitely a better colour.

my mum knitted one like that for me, back when i was still into that. i wore it, and it grew!
these days it's still alive... as a big, chunky cushion on the settee, front buttons and all... :)
thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by. You know, I can remember the 60's quite well; they say if you can remember them you weren't really there. LOL LOL

Cute sweater, very Brit.

Blessings,
