Knittin’ to the Oldies

vintagemag1I’ve been a collector for years, frequenting auctions, estate, and yard sales looking for treasures. So last summer, when I spotted a huge stack of vintage knitting catalogs and patterns while perusing a neighborhood garage sale, I just couldn’t pass them up!


Though some the patterns call for discontinued yarns, many of the patterns (well, most of them), can be adapted for today’s yarns and fashions (although some colors will definitely need to be changed!). In addition to fulfilling my “knitter’s need” for more pattern options, just looking at some of the advertisements, color choices, and poses of the models is priceless.
