“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 whole truth about all that has happened.
