This post is dedicated to Kirsty, who has recently inherited the pattern collection of her late aunt.
Among them was this gem.
Hopefully the beach towel/bagpuss-pelt/sack of spuds look will never come back into fashion. If indeed it ever was in.

But look how versatile it is! Though they missed out one other use for the skirt - it would make a splendid poncho...

Now you can see why people of a certain age were put off knitting!
Thank goodness the tide has turned.

Ps the crochet granny squares are looking good, and well done on your restraint when shopping. (always behind everyone else, me)
