Knit 1 Purl 1 Slip 1. Tradition continues. Warm Australian knitting wool continues to be made in Victoria - for one. A patterned Aran cardigan is pictured and a selection of knit wear, or failing that, the pure wool (or other blends) and knitting patterns are for sale. Competent knitters will keep alive this art using lacy patterns influenced by the Aran Islands, off the West Coast of Ireland.
Textured stitch patterns do not lend themselves to mass production so off-shore production is surely limited - for a change.
