Dorothy’s Vintage Shawl

I had the pleasure of adding a satin back to gorgeous vintage shawl, knit by Dorothy, the lovely woman who recently gave me a stack of vintage knitting patterns. I’m not sure exactly when it was knit, but Dorothy is in her late 80’s and she said this was her second knitting project ever, so perhaps in the 1940’s??

Vintage Knitting Patterns

While in Santa Barbara over the holiday, Adam and I had some lovely quality time with his 92 year old Grandmother, Nanny She. One afternoon, Nanny She took us over to her younger friend Dorothy’s house (and by younger I mean in her late 80’s). Nanny She wanted Dorothy to see the knitting projects that I’m working on currently. Since we were talking about knitting, Dorothy got down a rack of knitting patterns and let me have any vintage patterns I could find since she knew she wouldn’t use them. Golly gee how lucky I am!
