Along the way I did run into a few little amusements i wanted to share (you might be able to enlarge them if you click there)
I like how these patterns are adressed to the woman: "for yourself, choose this smart jacket in two tone tweed wool; for a boy friend, brother or husband, a sturdy pullover"
I like the idea of matching aran patterns for good companions. just the thing for hiking scootering or watching sports.
there are a lot of funny expressions on the faces of the child models
This is a comfy sock! Splendid.
eighties does vintage
i like this man posing with a cigarette. i came across a lot of men with pipes too.
for the youth of 1958
this one came from a booklet called 'family knits in royal style' this is the prince andrew style jumper - described as: "double breasted jacket; smart for all young Britons under five"
I like the rabbit.
is it a jumper? is it a scarf? no, it's called a vestee (and i want one!)
the belted sweater look - this is a man by the way
a white crochet bikini + bathing = bad news
There were too many to put here but if you like them, you should see the Pattern Junkie blog - it is full of vintage pattern gems and rather entertaining to boot.
And here is my bulging knitting pattern file! More knitting than i can ever hope to do in a lifetime i expect. a few great projects in there though.
I will have to share the beauties with you soon too.
Yours a fan of knitwear past,
