Vintage Knitting





I've always loved the look of 1940's knitted sewaters and shrugs, but haven't been able to find one. I did find very cute reproductions at Rocket Originals but can't afford to buy right now (I think I'll put some on my birthday list!). Any way, my little sis introduced me to knitting when she came to visit the other day. I was so impressed that she taught herself with books and online video tutorials on how to knit. If she could do it why can't I? I started getting ahead of myself and got excited with the idea that I could start knitting my own vintage sweaters. But of course, in reality it's going to take time and practice. I already learned how to cast on, and made 2 rows so far. My first project has to be something simple like a scarf. But I'm pretty excited with this because I never dreamed I could learn how to knit. Here are some pictures of some vintage sweaters that I hope one day I'll knit.
