      Sadly this is’nt me, my good friend jenny is modelling the jumper. I’m dark haired and dishevelled looking. It’s what happens when you live amongst piles of fabric!

      Us dark haired, disheveled ladies are just more easily distracted, that’s all! I do wis I could look more like your friend though sometimes!

    Oh wow, I’m so impressed. This is really great, I’m very jealous of your knitting skills.

      its from a book from the 70’s, it was one in a series. but i changed the jumper considerably from the origional pattern. The patterns in the book where all incorrectly written which was very odd. And the book had no title on it. All very strange.
