  1. And just what was she planning to do with those carrots?

    Btw, love your Brementown Musicians banner.

  2. Hi, finally pulled out this pattern to see what I needed to knit it. The instruc tions say to knit in the style of 1938-138 page 10. Is there any possibility of getting the pattern for the skirt.

  3. Thanks for the heads up, Susan. I’ve posted the extra page.

  4. Thank you lolarusa! Now only fear and common sense will keep me from tackling this suit. That and hours of gauge swatching and crying what have I done! (smile)

  5. Hi, Lolarusa ! Thanks for sharing this beautiful suit, and for the skirt extra page 10, but… the instructions say to work in same manner as skirt N° 1937-138, page 29 !!!!…Can you post the new extra page 29 ? Thanks very much in advance…

  6. Thanks for the heads up, Sylvie. You’re the first person to notice that. I guess no one else has tried to knit the skirt yet. I’ve added page 29 now. Let me know how it goes!

  7. Oooooohhh Thank you so much, Lolarusa ! I discover yesterday your magnificent blog, falling in love with this beautiful outfit, and want to make it.
    You are so adorable for posting this ultimate page 29 !
    Thanks, thanks, thanks too, for your generosity to share with us your treasures…
