Hello, dear followers!
I'd like to start by saying a big old 'Thank You' to all that have left lovely comments on my blog recently, thank you for taking the time I really am grateful to you all :) You may remember that a while back I promised you all a giveaway, for sticking with me! It has as usual taken a bit longer than I hoped to post about it, this is due to me deciding to make one of the prizes myself. You will be glad to know the wait is finally over, so now without further ado, here is what you could win in 'The 1930's giveaway'...
|Get the 30's look, with inspirations from Stitchcraft and a Vintage, styled crochet beret to Adorne your Barnet!|
1. An original copy of December 1937 Stitchcraft Magazine (from my collection).
Sadly it is missing its free transfer, but as it is over 70 years old, I guess it's understandable!
I have collected a few Stitchcraft Magazines over the years and I love them all, but must confess that the ones from the 1930's are my favourite. They really capture the end of an era just before the world was about to change forever. They are packed full of vintage inspirations, lots of knitting patterns, gloriously stylish adverts and lovely homely recipes. It really doesn't matter if you can't knit, as it's just as much fun to gaze at all the vintage pictures and adverts and get a snapshot of the era!
What you'll find inside this issue ...
|More fabulous Knitting Patterns including the knitted dress on the cover!|
|Knitting Paters Galore: A sporting set for Him and Her, a toddlers dress, and ladies cardigan.|
|A few homely makes including some Christmas time recipes (not very summery I know!!)|
2. A 1930's style Puff stitch Beret in a vibrant cherry red, made from the same pattern as this and lovingly (slowly) crocheted by yours truly! Oh but don't let that put you off :)
|A Puff Stitch Beret for unleashing your inner 30's starlet or perhaps for a sojourn in the French Resistance. Oh and I'm really not as miserable as I look, Promise!|
