Welcome to Peggy’s life in 1936
On Christmas Eve 2019 I re-discovered my Grandmother’s 1936 ‘school-girl’s diary’.
Peggy Newgass was born on February 22nd, 1920, which would have made her 100 this year. It felt like an apt time to publish her diary, one day at a time, as she wrote it, eighty four years ago.

Peggy’s first knitting pattern has the title ‘Jumper’.
Next, Peggy has sketched out what each of the three knitting patterns should look like, once completed.
The next knitting pattern is for another belted jumper, as seen in a later sketch. According to the title, it’s meant to fit ’30 in bust’, but presumably it didn’t turn out that good a fit, as she’s crossed out ’30’.
