Everything I Made In 2021! (and plans for 2022)

Have you seen on those period dramas or film, how during the day women always wore aprons? Not only working women or those working as servants in big houses (I’m thinking Downton Abbey) but also just regular everyday women. Up to the 1950’s it was pretty normal for a housewife as well as girls. It’s an extra layer of protection for your clothes, specially when you weren’t changing them daily and you had a lot of manual work to do.

Fire Escape Socks – Knitting Pattern

Inspired by the cherry blossoms down my street in Astoria, with their pink flowers that only last a week, this is a sleeveless top, that can also be worn as a vest, and if knitted with cotton yarn, it’s a great spring and summer garment.
