“Pattern from history” posts were born when my lovely grandmother gave me all (well, almost all) of her old pattern sheets. And it was many. She collected those years and years and I think it’s a fantastic reflection of knitting history of our little country.
To make this little bit personal, I try to put little bit history of Estonia behind the year of the pattern. And I try to add all that my grandmother can remember and can tell me.
I added “can tell me” because my granny is little protective of me – she shares what she thinks I can handle – I’m a sensitive nature you see
I love her for that, but I can’t always get the hole truth about all that have happened.

Thankfully, I found some deeply routed willpower to post this pattern. I don’t know where it came from and I don’t know where it went (I’m talking about willpower). But here’s the outcome 🙂
I’m in my summer mode and I believe my name for this pattern betray that. You can recommend names for the patterns you know. I plan to make a special place in the menu above for you, to recommend names and request patterns….someday when I’m not lazy anymore…
Right now, I would rather sit in the garden, sip some ice-cold tea and do absolutely nothing. Please tell me that you can relate to that. Then I’ll know that somewhere, in this exact time, you will be doing exact same thing…. aka nothing 😀
Alright, alright… let’s get started….
There’s already one post from this year. “Phenomenal knitted lace” from 1972. I don’t know if that’s a name or a statement 🙂
I tried to get the history part from Granny, but she was more interested in my tomatoes. Oh, they (they being my tomatoes) are fantastic – I have already eaten 2. Thank you for asking 🙂
