still in hampton

And a couple of sweaters. The blue one is Country Road and I bought it because I love that blue and it is 100 per cent linen. I plan to unravel it and knit some hand towels for the kitchen and bathroom.

I'm a sucker for vintage sweaters and this very light blue one is in perfect condition. What a fabulous lable - 100% Geelong Lambswool, Made in Scotland. I'm planning to alter this one a bit too - take it in at the sides so it's not so boxy and alter the neckline into a scoop which I will then edge with some Liberty fabric bias tape (from my collection of Liberty fabric salvaged from garments bought at the op shop).

Vintage labels are so cool. I've seen ones with Sydney or Melbourne but never Geelong! Great find.
