Vintage Knitting

September 9, 2014

Hi all! I actually have a sweater to show you guys that my mother graciously made for me. It took her a year, so I’ve been waiting for it for a while. But nevertheless, it’s very nice. It’s a pattern from the book A Stitch in Time volume 2. The yarn is a colonial blue, made of 100% wool I believe. I picked some cool buttons I had in my stash, I have reason to believe they are from the late 1800’s. They are made out of bone, and are a lot more yellow than in my picture.

I also happen to be wearing some pants that I made a short while ago. I know that 1960’s bell bottoms don’t go with a 1930’s sweater, but whatever.

Hope you guys like it, I would definitely recommend this pattern if anyone wants to knit!

  1. Awesome! It getting to be sweater time up north and this is lovely. I think that the sweater and pants go together just fine; there are plenty of images of 30s beach pajamas and slacks that are flared, so you’re 70s does 30s mash up does just fine.

  2. Wow! What a beautiful result and isn’t it fulfilling when you’ve finished a knitted! Excellent job!
