I've been interstate - visiting grandchildren

Have had a lovely dose of grandmothering - they are great kids ...aahhhh just wish we all lived in the same city.

Well, much of my recent crafting has been knitting for the little ones - this wonderful vintage pattern, early 1950s I think, very warm with the double breasted front and stylish with the collar and mini-cables.

Made it in lovely soft 'Alpaca Rich' a new yarn from Bendigo Woolen Mills.

In the same yarn, a set for granddaughter - my own patterns all with Hearts & Flowers in Fair-Isle ... because she makes me go 'all Hearts & Flowers' :-)

I'd finished the jacket and had started planning the pattern for the helmet when my daughter rang and asked if I could knit some 80's style leg-warmers; of course said I - after I'd stopped laughing ....

Remember the movie "Fame" ? here we are doing some stretching -

Here is the helmet with hearts on the ear-flaps :-)
