I am tired! sat here just looked at clock and it's nearly 11pm when did it happen did I blink and Miss Thursday? I am finally managing a few rows of knitting of the Cabled feather cowl before my bed starts calling my name, need to finish it as its part of the set I'm knitting for my Cousin's Christmas present, I think I have already shown you the Fingerless gloves, in lovely 100% merino I am VERY tempted to keep these myself!

Now my dears I hear my bed calling and I leave with you with one of my favourite Lord Byron poems well just the start of it 

HE walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

Late 1800's Lady
I was reading  Tilly Rose Blog and her wonderful article about the age gone by from the elgant 1850's to the swinging 20's and the whole elegance of the eras, in todays world its jeans and t shirts then it was pretty knitted items and hand sewn dresses, what happened when did we stop spending the time on ourselfs? 

I mean look at this lady <<< very elegant, don't you think?  For me the draw is the Romance of the time gone by I LOVE the elegant dresses, the fine   crocheted shawls. the beautifully decorated hats

Early 1800's
So what's stopping us girls putting some elegance back into our days? It could be something as simple as a beautifully hand knitted Lace scarf, or even a gorgeous scrummy capelet like this wonderful lady is wearing

So come on girls lets bring some Vintage into our days!
