Brown Stash

Bought a couple more balls today, to add to the 80p worth from a few days ago. The new colours are acrylic, unfortunately, but I only need a few rows for the fair isle so they will be just fine for that. This pile of brown is destined for a 80s classic - the Ralph Lauren Ski Sweater. Ah nostalgia. It probably won't be the same this time around. The pattern is by Nancy Vale. I came across her 80s book second hand - I bought the original when it came out. Ralph Lauren's prairie collection was THE thing one year, I can't remember which, but I made the dress (American cowgirl type) from a Vogue pattern and the jumper and by some lucky miracle they turned out OK.
