Wit Knits

I’m not sure I ever blogged about this, but several years ago, a curious tome came into my possession. Behold…

 

Possibly the most 80s knitting book ever. I don’t really remember how I came by it, but one flick through the pages and I was smitten.

 

Ginger sauce-pot Bonnie Langford featured prominently in a variety of knitwear and lace gloves. I think you can tell from her rictus grin that by the time came to take the cat photo, she was regretting the whole thing somewhat.

 

A demented-looking Floella Benjamin also posed for a sporty number. Jon Inman was also suitably surprised-looking.

 

I guess if you looked down and saw those birds perched on your midriff, you might be a bit taken aback, too. Matthew Kelly camped it up in fine style.

But really, I know you are all waiting for Biggins…

He definitely looks like he had the most fun. My favourite pose though is Anne Diamond, then-queen of breakfast television, who clearly is the only one who took it seriously.

 

Lovely. I wonder where my knitting needles are?
