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!
I got several patterns from the fifties, a Vogue knitting magazine from 1958 (cover missing, unfortunately), and a stack of knitting magazines from the 60’s. I’m already have a list of WIPs, but I know that once I clear out this list I’m moving onto some vintage patterns!
