Vintage Knitting

vintage knitting

Summer is wrapping up in Australia, with one more hot month before coolness starts to set in. There is a Monday morning in April each year in Sydney, when all the girls on the train platform are suddenly wearing scarves.  It’s like they all coordinate it (there must be an app or something).  Winter coats follow soon after, but my favourite cold weather garment will always be a cardigan.

I’m starting to plan my knitting for the year now, because it took me most of last winter to knit my teal Audrey cardigan. If I am to add another vintage inspired cardigan to my wardrobe this year, I better get started!

When I watched the movie Brooklyn recently, I was very inspired by the cardigans and sweaters worn by Saoirse Ronan.  I wanted to start knitting right there in the cinema.
