A busy time of year…

Just a quick post today, as we are all very busy at this time of year…

Even WonkyZebra has been out on safari much more than usual…However there are still some new things to find in the shop… and some old favourites are selling well….

The lovely 281 reindeer jumper for one.

WonkyZebra 281 Vintage Reindeer Sweater 1661  WZ281,

I decided to make a file of reindeer and snowflake motifs – as lots of us like them but don’t want to make a whole jumper.

So here it is – a nice collection; but not all charted. See the listing for details (click on the image link to ETSY).

WonkyZebra 447 Reindeers  WZ474

There are some good patterns for not-quite-last-minute gift making…

WonkyZebra 469 Solomon Owl   WZ469,   WonkyZebra 473 4 Knitted Booties   WZ473,

… some to keep you warm and cosy,

WonkyZebra 470 Knitted Leg Ankle Warmers 1997 WZ470,  WonkyZebra 470 DT Knitted Leg Ankle Warmers 1997

These legwarmers (vintage name) or boot cuffs (modern name!) are quick to do in the short length.

WonkyZebra 437 AT Bellmans HatsWZ437,WonkyZebra 438 Flower Power Hats 2051WZ438,

These fab berets and beanies are quick made in chunky yarn. In pre internet days I sold loads of ‘number 4’ just by word of mouth… I teamed it with a skinny scarf like the lime one in wz437 for a fabulous hippy set.

WonkyZebra 473 Baby Blanket  WZ473,WonkyZebra 473 Baby Blanket B

This beautiful motif blanket or shawl clearly has mileage as far as the age of your recipient goes… and makes a lovely project for the holiday season, for you to cosy up with.

Or how about some quick last minute glamour? These two pretty cover-ups both vaguely snowflake looking (come on use some imagination and swap flower colours for sparkly white!)

WonkyZebra 476 Crochet Cobweb WaistcoatWZ476, WonkyZebra 260 CobWeb HoodieWZ260,

Or some real wow factor with that glitzy little ripple camisole..

WonkyZebra 361 Vest and Sleeveless Coat 5935  WZ361,

…this knockout lace dress ( probably best to aim for a mini version or top if you want it for New Year celebrations…)

WonkyZebra 451 Net Maxi Dress  WZ451,   WonkyZebra 451 Net Maxi Dress 451

or this gorgeous ‘opera’ cape.

WonkyZebra 320 Purple Cape  WZ320.

Which come to think of it, used just for the stitch pattern, would make a great blanket to keep you warm as well.

And for those of you in warmer climates (lucky things) a new vintage bikini

(coming soon a PIC  and a LINK to the bikini…)

About WonkyZebra

WonkyZebra and I have collected tons of patterns over the years. Before this was fashionable and the whole “vintage” thing happened, it was just considered to be a funny sort of hoarding; a bit “anorak” to use one of the slightly mocking terms us English specialise in. Now it is a wonderful source of lost treasure in the online textile universe; who would have guessed! It was quite a relief to find there are many others “out there” who appreciate a good pattern-and maybe even enjoy using them! I think it is a good thing anyone can get access to the designs instead of just those lucky enough to find them in gran’s workbox or charity shops. So, here we are with all our hoard, trying to make it all available as fast as we can…hooves don’t help much so it is down to me. I squeeze it in between actual crocheting, knitting, life, and other sundries. Vintage patterns; PDFs for sale at http://wonkyzebra.etsy.com
