It’s a sweater using the Monkey Socks lace pattern chart from www.knitty.com. The rest of it is made up. The yarn is Little Grey Sheep’s 4-ply Gotland, which was custom dyed for me in the colourway “Diesel”. Date started: 2 September 2018.
Based on the original 1941 Clothing Rations, I have 66 coupons to spend. This year, I’m not doing the challenge alone - several ladies from the Old Style Board at www.moneysavingexpert.com have joined me.
- 2 coupons - Grey scarf covered with small pink Kiwis
That leaves me with 6 coupons left to spend.
* This was my third purchase, so that I could get enough of the Victoria colourway to knit another Sunray Ribbing top, this time in deep red. I played yarn chicken with this one and have 5 grams left to sew in the sleeves and knit the collar.
** Yes, I know I’ve spent 17 coupons on yarn. I will try not to buy any more before Christmas.
