Coronation Street knits...

A couple of these I thought of sending to What Not To Knit (but they never put my contributions up!!) Anyway, my boss surprised me t'other day with a glorious pattern book from 1968 featuring the stars of Corrie. We really love this one - I'd be happy with just the pic of harridan Ena Sharples all smiles in Sirdar Caprine. It's priceless! But that's just the tip of the Sirdar/Weatherfield iceberg...check out Albert Tatlock relaxing in his holiday-mood raglan sweater (how does a sweater put you in a 'holiday mood'?), or Emily Bishop looking a bit racy for her 'special occasion'...or kiddie fiddler Len Fairclough 'At Your Leisure'. Enough said. Enjoy!

Ha ha, absolutely priceless. A must-have for Corrie fans.

I so want it.
Any of these would still look good - bar the mini-dresses. Classics.
