Did you see the Wartime Farm Christmas Special last night?
Peter and Ruth returned for a one off programme – but no Alex!
So I couldn’t say “Oh I do like that jumper!” – as I have done for almost every other programme in the series. But – amazing news- Fishcake contacted me this evening [immediately she heard this, she thought of me and emailed – how kind is that?]
The pattern for Alex’s jumper will be available next year, and you can pre-order now. Here is the link [click here ] It is based on the original 1930s pattern – and comes in sizes 3from 3 years to 54” chest. Not only that, but for every pattern bought, £2.50 will go to the Women’s Land Army Tribute Campaign, to fund a memorial at the national Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Which I think is brilliant.
But I cannot decide – with the provision of such a wide variety of sizes on the one pattern – do I knit one for myself, or one for Bob – or one each [that would be rather ‘Howard and Hilda’ wouldn’t it?]
Thanks Fishcake for the heads-up on this one.
