I think the previous occupants of our cottage used the garden as a rubbish tip as we regularly dig up old bottles,bits of rusty metal and millions of nails! Have found a china spaniel and marbles too,and the usual blue and white pottery (why is it always blue and white??) The best thing we found,alt...

I was thinking of trying to knit two rectangles for the front and back and two for the sleeves as all the patterns Ive found seem to be too fitted and Im thinking more on the lines of a sloppy joe! Thanks...
