1960s Vintage Knitting PDF Giveaway

Hooray! I'm actually making progress in my scans of my vintage knitting patterns. I just put this awesome PDF booklet from 1961 with 25 women's sweater patterns up in my Etsy store, for $10. So of course I will be giving one away! To enter, leave a comment below with either a link to your blog or your email (so that I can contact you in the event of winning!) before December 1st.
In other news, I've gotten a haircut. I've been long missing my bangs and went into the Fantastic Sams with an iconic image of Brigit Bardot in hand. I think it came out a little more Ally Sheedy, but I owe that to my hair color and the fact that I don't have time to put it up into a bouffant. You can see what I mean in these lovely photos from my 5 year high school reunion.
 Note how in the first photo, my face is its normal color, having just arrived. Note in photo two, after a lovely sangria the rather, ahem, red glow I have! And yes, besides the girl who came in a Barbie neon pink dress I was the only one in a bright color.

  1. The bangs look dope. I love the expression of the blonde model, she looks like she's getting a root canal. So sexy.

  2. What a great haircut. Somehow I am thinking you need to make a seventies style dress to go with the cute hairdo! I have some fab Marlo Thomas dress patterns . She was in the show "That Girl" in the seventies

  5. The sweaters in the vintage patterns are so classic. Those are the sweaters that would go with so many things even now.

  8. Ha! My mom just brought me similar knitting magazine that belonged to my grandma. The part I love best is that all the models look like they're trying to look like mannequins. What were the art directors thinking? Your new 'do is very cute:)
