Oh how happy I was to receive an email from Anna from A few Threads Loose (You should definitely check that out. She has some great tutorials in there!) that I had won a give-away for a 50$ gift certificate to Patterns from the past. I have to admit, I had completely forgotten I had participated, so my astonishment was guaranteed.
So I went and spent a little more than my coupon. Here's what I picked:
Here we have a 1939 Butterick pattern for the perfect everyday dress.
An early 1950's New York pattern for a 30's inspired summer dress.
And a 50's Bernat knitting booklet.
I wonder what it is with me and knits. I keep hoarding knitting magazines, booklets and digital instruction, yet I never get anything done. I always start something new and never finish it. I have a sweater I started 2 years ago that's still not finished. And it would only need to have the cuffs finished!
|I would love to make one of these though. Maybe I would even have a chance of finishing it with a chunky yarn like that.|
And since I'm such a terrible hoarder (not just with knitting instructions, but also fabrics and vintage patterns) I decided to participate in the "Stashbusting Sewalong" over at Cation Designs. I pledge to use at least 2 fabric pieces from my stash this year and share the project with you. I'm going to use a vintage patterns for both projects.
