  1. I remember with huge affection the Paton and Baldwins knitting book that belonged to my mum, I think that was the one with the knitted swimming trunks and the dad smoking a pipe! I enjoyed the post about the tea cosy sizes, I had the same trouble! Just visiting from CMQ ,
    Happy Christmas from Lincolnshire and congrats on your show ribbon,

    1. Thank you Sue, and a Happy slightly early Christmas to you from Somerset!

      The knitted trunks and bathing costumes are such a laugh, aren't they? If you ever find a book with pictures taken after a quick dip in the sea, I would love to see it.

      Love, Muv
