Vintage Knitting Pattern & Sewing Notions

A lazy post this evening, while watching some Orange is the New Black (and possibly Revenge of the Nerds). I picked up these vintage knitting patterns at a recent meeting of my Weavers, Spinners and Dyers guild. The sewing notions included in a couple of photos are courtesy of Maddie; I won them in a giveaway on her blog.

It’s dubious whether I’ll ever knit these patterns – I have a substantial Ravelry queue and am continually distracted by the newest indie release – but they are sooo nice to look at.

  1. The last one definitely made me laugh!

  2. That mod-looking green dress four rows down has stolen my heart.

    • Yes, I love an a-line dress. I’m yet to knit a dress, but I’d love to have a go at some point. It feels like it would takes ages though!

      • I just finished knitting a skirt…it took me 2 months. So I guess add that on to however long it takes you to knit a sweater, generally, and that might be how long it’d take you to do a dress? (I have yet to do a sweater myself, or I’d estimate!)
