A lovely family day out at The Black Country Living Museum included three unexpected wool-related sightings!
Skeins of wool in the window of the 1920s General Stores …
A hand-knitted tank-top in the window of the men’s outfitters, H Morrall, set in 1935 …
and a crocheting demonstration on the canal barges, as this was apparently a common activity which could be done while steering the barge. Multi-tasking was the norm, even before it had a name!
What has made you think of knitting this week? I’d love to know!
Off to Creativa this afternoon so lots of inspiration there, I hope!

Ooo, sounds fabulous! How was it? Were there specific trends? Were you tempted by anything?
