Vintage Knitting

September 18, 2011

The weather may not be cooperating, but post Labor Day I amready to pull out all my cardigans and tights. I did, however, get a chance to wear this sweater last week before itgot super hot again.
The Fall season means my knitting needles will start to getmore of a workout, and I will hopefully complete a few of the projects that havebeen stashed away on needles for quite some time.   
This sweater is “The Rose Jumper” from A Stitch in Time.  The bookis filled with knitting projects from the 1920s through the 1940s.  Copies of the original patterns are includedalong with updated versions with extended sizes.  I am absolutely in love with every project inVolume 1 – if only there were more hours in the day!  And if you are looking for a little vintageinspiration, the photography is stunning.
I finished this sweater back in January, but never gotaround to wearing it – mostly because I could not find a skirt to wear withit.  That means it is time to start sewing up some 1930s inspired skirts!  Then the weather got too warm, andit was tucked away.  As soon as theweather gets cool again, I will be sure to pull this out again.
More pictures of the finished sweater may be found over atLilacs & Lace.
  1. WOW! This is great! I have several vintage knitting books that I have yet to use, but your sweater is inspiring me to do some fall knitting!
