Shawlette Knit-a-Long Results

I forgot to post pictures of my first finished shawlette.  My daughter modeled  (my grand had to get into the act too).

Since finishing this one, I've started two others in different patterns.

Happy Crafting ♥

1948 Vogue Knitting Book

My daughter was given some vintage knitting magazines, which she then gifted to me. (She is the best daughter!) 


I especially enjoy the 1948 Vogue. The styles are classic, elegant and beautiful. Even my six year old granddaughter recognizes the beauty of these styles.

The full length dresses and 3-piece suit patterns are amazing! I can't imagine how long it would take someone to knit an outfit like that. I feel accomplished just finishing a hat or scarf, and am slowly working my way through my first sweater.

Please excuse my poor photography, and the way the model's heads are cut off by the collage. I hope that you can still see how lovely the designs are.

It is a lot of fun to read the ads too. By the way, did you catch the .50 price tag for the magazine!
