Time-Machine Tuesday: Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn.
Oh my god! Can you get over that picture? This pamphlet is probably one of the single most inspiring things in my vintage pattern collection. The colors! The patterns! The boys! All perfect. Seriously. I love it.
I can't believe that once uopn a time, these pattern booklets only cost 35 cents! I paid quite a bit more than that. Ten times more to be exact. Still worth every cent.
I always search eBay and Etsy for STAR books. They're full of the best kitschy vintage patterns and the styling is TO DIE FOR. I just can't can't get enough.
I want to knit every single one of these things, just maybe in something a little more comfortable than rug yarn. Yikes! Can we talk about how itchy that mock neck poncho ordeal would be?
Do you have any favorite vintage patterns or books? Tell me about them!
