"a charming story in which nothing terribly dramatic happens, but you like the characters and you want them to be happy." could be any of her books, almost! You introduced me to her, and I've enjoyed it. Oh, Nature Wool. So pretty. So pilly. An aside - you occasionally have a quote on pedants on the blog header, which I meant to save. Can you send it? Thanks!


That is another book ordered, thank you!

I remember knitting patterns like the one featured, they used to be so cheap, just pennies each; and each one saved to re-use or share with friends.

Thanks for sharing these pics, Jeanne. I always find the best pictures of D E Stevenson characters on vintage knitting patterns, since they are more like to be real-looking people than posey models.

Indeed, Five Windows is a true gem, and well worth tracking down.
