A good friend left me her Vogue Knitting books. The oldest dates back to 1947. Just look at this
How cool. I love vintage patterns. You can find some really good stuff in the old mags.
Have fun with them,
You are a lucky man. Many happy hours await you.
Golly, that's a swell ansemble!
Seriously, I love getting my hands on that vintage stuff.
You know, I do think I like those boxers! Done up in a newer yarn, that can look quite good. The top is okay too, with some modifications. That style is quite timeless. There is a lot of value in those old magazines.
Congratulations. That was a nice gift and - as others have pointed out - the really good designs can be updated and worn today.
Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
