Blast from the Vintage Past

Before I go into what the title is all about, I just want to let you know how the jacket is coming along. I'm almost done. I just need to do the sleeves of the lining, attach the lining to the jacket, finish the collar, do final hemming and attach the button(s) (I might put two instead of one like the pattern says). I've been sick, so I haven't been feeling up to doing much of anything other than sleeping. Bleh.

So, on to the actual subject. I was looking for some holiday present ideas since I'm poor but I have toooons of yarn to make stuff when I came upon this awesome site. The picture to the left will take you there if you want. It's called Vintage Purls. They had some awesome clothes to knit back then. You just don't see that kind of quality nowadays. . .well, you do, but it's rarer than it was then. And they have patterns for men, babies and children. How cool is that?

Apparently, there's more than one vintage site out there. I did find some more. You could, too. Just do a search for vintage knits. I accidently stumbled onto these searching for "holiday knit ideas." See? Accidents can be beneficial. I'd love to try and make some of the articles listed on Vintage Purls, but my project list is so long and I need to come up with some Christmas presents for family that I probably won't be able to start anything until after the big holiday season (mid-January if I'm lucky).

Well, I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do! You're welcome.
