I stumbled across these photos on the web yesterday.
This is the tiny village in the U.K. where I lived as a child. Picturesque, no? These photos were taken in December of 2000.
The village is Pinner and it’s just 12 miles or so from London — it’s even on the London subway system.
The first written reference to the village of Pinner was in 1231. In May 1336, King Edward III granted a Royal Charter to the village permitting it to hold two markets and one fair each year.
I’m feeling nostalgic, remembering Christmas in this cosy little place.
Ye Olde Knitted Crappe
From Vogue Knitting in the early 1990s. Knitted in Jamieson & Smith shetland wool.
Ye Newe Fulmar
And right now the sleeve is almost done. Gotta knit the shoulder strap to the body, pick up neckband stitches and knit, then sew this rascal together. It’ll be done before Christmas. Yee haw.
Izzy said to tell you all hey.
