I Love 1952

Vogue Knitting 1952

I have a copy of the Vogue Knitting Book from 1952 (Number 40).  The Spring issue. It's full of little knitted blouses and most of them go up to bust size 38, if not 40.  Makes you feel good to be alive.

The caption here reads,
'The new tiny jacket, short sleeved, small waisted and with a high band collar of ribbon.  Make it in a shade exactly matching your skirt.'

The size 38 requires 16 buttons

I'm still having a bit of trouble finding the enthusiasm for knitting.  Very odd.  Maybe there is just too much going on at the moment.  I have lots of ideas.  Just can't start them off.  So I got out all  my old knitting magazines and am having lots of fun.
