Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

Friday once again so I'm off over to see Erika to share another golden oldie. Following on the tiger theme today I'm sharing a jumper I knitted many moons ago.

I don't have the jumper any more alas, nor can I find the pattern but I did find this picture of it on the internet. I think it was from a magazine, most likely The Women's Weekly.

And this is a photo of me wearing it....oh to be that young and skinny again!! This photo dates back to 1985 so was taken a few months before my first date with hubby....I think it was the jumper he took a fancy to lol! Whilst I don't have the jumper I do still have the wellies...they were a darn good buy!


  1. Hello Carol, wow, what a fabulous knit and oldie, brilliant tiger pattern, did it take long to knit? Great photo of you wearing it too amidst all that snow, hugs Kate x

  2. Wow! This really is a blast from the past Carol, I can remember having jumpers like this, I didn't knit them myself though - I'm not that clever!

  3. This is a real oldie Carol but what a super tiger jumper and I think we were all a lot skinnier 30 years ago, crikey how time flies.

  4. great nostalgic post and fun story

  5. Arh happy times the 80's time of picture jumpers. Carol love your blast from the past, that's one fancy jumper I bet is was difficult to knit with all that constant changing of colours. (Can you tell I'm not a knitter?!)
    Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie today, have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x

  6. Fabulous jumper and thank you for sharing a photograph of yourself wearing it. I was a prolific knitter in the 80's not so much now.

  10. Fabulous jumper Carol, I too used to knit jumpers for my family and myself, many years ago. I didn't attempt anything as difficult as this jumper though!
    Lovely photo of you. Have a lovely weekend and thanks for visiting my blog.
    Hugs Jennifer xx

  11. Oh Carol, thanks so much for that! It brought back a million memories!
    I used to knit all sorts of these picture jumpers...intarsia they call it now! I did so many Garfields, Super Teds & lots of others!
    Used to watch TV & read a book at the same time too! lol!
