A few ramblings about knitting, mainly vintage stuff and other bits and bobs

Vintage Yarns

As I go through the patterns I'll add them to this list with any colours that get mentioned. I'll also add the tension or gauge, if it's stocking stitch or rib, to make it easier for you to find substitutions.
