Prince of Wales Fair Isle Slipover

This is the “Prince of Wales Vest” by Katherine Misegades from the book “Sweaters From Camp” by Swanson et al. First, a bit of history. The then Prince of Wales, Edward VIII, was given a Fair Isle garment in 1921. The prince was known as a trend setter and he was always keen to promote British products. He wore Fair Isle jumpers, slipovers and stockings in public, especially on the golf course, thereby popularizing Fair Isle garments and giving a boost to the industry. He posed for the famous painting by Sir Henry Lander in 1921, wearing a traditional Fair Isle jumper.

Meeting others

I had the joy of meeting one of the members on this website this Sunday.
He just happened to be in my neck of the woods and asked to meet with me. I was very flattered about it.
He was a very creative man and very kind and warm to talk to. We must have talked about knitting(him sharing one of his patterns with me) and my travels to the Netherlands last year.
