I've got some real treasures to post for the taking today.
Here is a set of four books containing knitting patterns that all of you ka-nitters out there will enjoy looking through.
They are all from the early to mid-1960s when I first started to really get into knitting. Truth be told, it's kinda hard for me to part with these books, 'cause they sure do bring back a lot of memories. However, two "savers" in the family (both Papa Pea and Chicken Mama) are quite enough, and I'm on a roll to get rid of "stuff" that, at this point in my life, feels as if it's weighing me down.
Some of these patterns don't look that different than ones you see in knitting books for sale today.
Very pretty, simple patterns you can do if you've done much knitting at all.
Even if you didn't want to knit a sweater, some of these beautiful patterns would make a gorgeous scarf or rectangular lap robe. (The look this fella in the picture above has goin' is really stylin', isn't it?)
And here's an outfit that I'm sure many of you really need to add to your wardrobe. (Seriously, doesn't it look like something you'd see on the red carpet today?)
If you'd like to receive the package of all four of these books, be the first to leave a comment saying so, and I'll ship these oldies but goodies off to you.
Just when it couldn't have been more surreal...
