I’m currently celebrating the 3 R’s of Vintage – Rescue, Revive and Relove.
My first 3 R celebration is my finished Entrelac jumper (you may remember it from an October’s Entrelac Knitting post)!
The jumper was lying half-finished in the bottom of a wool bin at my local charity shop when I found it. Rather than unpicking someone’s hard-worked stitches I took on the challenge of completing the knit.
I love this jumper for several reasons;
1 – I love it because it reminds be of an old traditional party game (I think it was called Misfits) as one person started knitting the jumper and like the game, I had the honour of knitting the next (and final!) section.
2 – I love the coloured diamond effect the variegated Sidar yarn creates.
3 – I love that knitting the jumper has helped my confidence in knitting patterns grow.
My second ‘rescue, revive and relove’ celebration is this oak sideboard.
Again sourced from a charity shop. A bit of sanding, Danish oil and TLC later…..
Do you have any 3 R vintage finds you want to share? Send me your comments so we can all celebrate with you!
