Those of you who know me well, will know that I collect old knitting and crochet patterns. Rarely for the patterns themselves, I must admit; more often for the wonderful cover pics. My walls are covered in them. And I thought, "I want to share my little treasure trove with everyone".
So what better way than to hold an informal competition?
Each month, I'll post a picture from an old pattern. All you need to do is send me a funny caption for it. The person who makes me laugh the longest and hardest will win 100g of my rockpool candy fibre for spinning (or I'll spin it up for those crocheters and knitters who don't spin). It's open to anyone anywhere in the world. I'll pay the postage in return for the laughter.
So put on your funny pants and apply yourself. Here comes picture number one.
It's for Twilley's Health Vest - as recommended by the medical profession, (don't you know!)
