Vintage Knits

A friend has lent me her Gran's book of knitting patterns - "Practical Family Knitting Illustrated" ... I thought I would share some of the fabulous pictures from the book.

How would your husband/boyfriend like a"Man's Sport Shirt Knitted in a Checked Rib"?

Or what about a lovely "Summer Dress Knitted in a Linen Thread"?

I think that I will have a go at this "Sleeveless Jerkin For Fresh Spring Days" ....

Or maybe this ....

Or this?

The patterns are so lovely and classic - I will definitely have to give something a try! Or maybe I will just settle for getting myself a 40's hairdo!!
