People often say to me, is your life really crazy? And I say, why, yes...yes it is! I am trying to figure out how to balance a part time job, working one day a week at kindergarten, working one day a week at preschool, being the head of the preschool fundraising committee, and being the sewing coordinator at kindergarten. I am sure other people's lives are just a different version of crazy, right? I don't know but I sometimes feel like I really suck at this.
On to the fun... Have I ever shared my love of vintage picture knits? Well, I adore them. Knit O Graf, Mary Maxim, you name it, if it's from the 50s or 60s and it's a picture knit, well I am a sucker for it. Which is not to say that I have actually knit anything of this particular genre. A while back I had a pattern buying binge on eBay.
Something for the adults:
And the icing on the cake, bonnets for girls, "helmets" for boys! And if you're afraid of your little boy looking like a sissy, how about a handgun helmet, circa 1952? Too bad it's not sized to go with the deer sweater.
Anyone have a good recommendation for a soft wool yarn at 6 stitches to the inch on US#3s? I really want to make the plaid bonnet!
