Oddities

MONKEY!

I made this monkey from this pattern: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/motoymoknpru.html

although I diverged a lot.  The body is silk chenille, the face and hands are silk chainette.  I stitched the mouth and nose with my hand-reeled silk.

Scotch and Soda

I bought a pattern book called "Brunswick Mostly Male" from an eBay seller in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  I just had to share a few of my favorites.

My guess is that the book is from the late 1960's (no publish date but I can just imagine these fashions on the actors in Rowan and Martin's Laugh-in (circa 1968)

This is probably my favorite picture - not because the knit item is so dated but because it truly shows how the times have changed (thank goodness!)

Oh well, I need run - gotta stand by my fireplace with a scotch and soda and a Marlboro!
