A quick post tonight to show the vintage pattern I'm working on at the moment. I bought it for 50p in a charity shop at the weekend.
Not sure why I bought it really since I have folders bursting at the seams with old patterns, but it's not often I find affordable vintage patterns these days, they're generally seriously overpriced. Not having any babies to knit for I'll probably donate this cardi to charity.
I'm knitting it with an apple green ribbing and the main part a lemon yellow, and if it turns out okay I'm planning on making another one with the colours reversed (yellow ribbing/ green main). I'll get two cardis out of 200g of value acrylic yarn at a cost of around £3.20 for both.
Dinner tonight was chicken pie leftover from yesterday served with chips and beans (for DH) and mushy peas (for me). The pie came out of the freezer, a huge one made when there were more of us to cater for, so its done 2 meals and DS1 will have the remainder for his lunch tomorrow. That's now all the sachets of Approved Foods chicken in juice used up.
Tomorrow I'll give a bit of a round up of how well (or not) I've done during Frugal February.
