More Vintage Knitting PatternLove

I was glad to see that I'm not the only one who likes those vintage knitted tea cosies
the only one who hasn't the ability to knit them!
Such a shame.
I mean who wouldn't love a knitted nightdress case like the one above?
Well maybe not a boy but I'm guessing that most little boys would love
a knitted Alien,
as would quite a few girls.

And what about this knitted puppy dog? Isn't he adorable?

But then maybe a snake is more your thing

or perhaps you'd like to gallop away on a knitted hobby horse?

If only wise owl could teach me to knit!

The patterns for all the toys pictured are available to purchase here.

    I love tea cosies and have a very old pattern from my husband's Granny, and have knitted it for various friends and events, in the strangest colours (by request i might add). I miss my apple trees that were in our old garden, it should b law that when building new houses that there should be a garden big enough for a veg patch and a fruit tree!!!
