Knits à la 1930

by Laura Mae

in 1930s

I have been knitting up a storm lately.  There is a lovely late 1940s suit cut out in my sewing room, but I just have not been motivated to get to it.  Instead, here are a couple of my recent vintage reproduction knits.

The first is “This One for Parties” from A Stitch in Time, Volume 1.  In my opinion, the name alone is reason enough to pull out the knitting needles!  I recently found the perfect skirt to wear with the sweater, so it finally came out of the bureau to play.

And this is my most recent knitting project, from A Stitch in Time, Volume 2.

And now I am going to head back to the couch with my tea and knitting needles!

They both look really lovely! I got the first book for christmas so I’m currently desperately trying to choose which one to make first.

Laura, I wonder if you’ve noticed the difference in your skin with the 2 colors. With the pink. you look lovely with a rosy complexion; in the orange, you’re washed out. That’s what happens with me. I color-typed myself and am a winter, so I don’t wear any colors in the orange/mustard, etc. family anymore. I look like I died and nobody told me! gail
