I am a Petone mother of three who likes to knit the old fashioned way - in front of Coronation Street on a cold winter's evening.

I get inspiration from old 1960s knitting patterns and while some deserve to be followed to the letter - why mess with the decade of perfect style - I try to give others a modern touch.

Sadly with knitting being a slow craft and only so many hours in the day items are being added at a leisurely pace but I hope you enjoy what you see and check back from time to time.
