Carmine by Belinda Boaden, as published in issue 25 of The Knitter, knitted in Palette Collection Vintage Series 120/219 in Red Bud, commenced 30 August 2020. This jumper is also known as “Trott”. The picture is my swatch. I wasn’t that impressed by the yarn, but it’s grown on me. It was a Bargain Basement buy at £1.25/ball from Hobbycraft.
Based on the original 1941 Clothing Rations, I have 66 coupons to spend plus the 6 I saved from last year, so 72 in total. I’m not doing the challenge alone - several ladies from the Old Style Board at www.moneysavingexpert.com have joined me.
