Twenty or so years ago I bought a copy of Madeline Weston's book The Traditional Sweater Book. It was the second book of traditional designs I had owned. The first was Michael Pearson's Traditional Knitting. I made lots of the designs from both books. Some I still have lurking around the house and this is a set that I dragged out of the wardrobe yesterday because I needed something warm to wear so I could walk the dog in a bitter breeze. I was very warm indeed by the time I'd walked for an hour in this lot.
