Old School

The fur-girls checking out Gretchen's new bag

We’ll just pretend today is Thankful Tuesday.  Gretchen’s already put up a thank you post to gMarie for her present, and now, I’m doing a thank you post for my prize package from Eternal Arts & Crafts’ giveaway

I was delighted to win Knitting It Old School.   Most of the patterns are of a vintage flavor, and even the names are awesome.  You can find links to all of the patterns here, on Ravelry.  Some are silly, some are classic styles likely to end up in my queue.  I mean, how can you NOT want to knit a Watusi Dress?!   (Who remembers the song that has “Watusi!  Now Twist,” in the lyrics?)

Jodi also included some great, soft yarn so I can make a cube (Ravelry link) she made, once the pattern is released.   Here you can see my assitant inspecting the book.  (One international package, and suddenly, they’re both customs agents!)  Thanks so VERY much, Jodi!  I love it all!

So, do you like vintage?  If so, what?

    Hey, you never know. Those packages could have contraband in them. The fur-girls are on the job!

    What a fun prize! I love your customs officials. They don’t look as mean as the ones I’ve met.

    Your assistant looks very helpful!

  6. Happy Anniversary again

    It is not our custom to ignore new things, Mom…

    Love the colors!

  8. I think it’s good to have inspectors on the job…but then, I’d better think so, since I have my own pair, right? Lovely gifties…I DO like old-school things, depending on the vintage. Off to check out all the links.

    I do like some vintage. I inherited my Mom’s patterns from the 40s and 50s and I love looking thru them. A lot have come back into style.

    I luvres me some vintage :). Of course the pics from way back then show clothing on what? like a size 22″ waist?? LOL Not happening here, that’s for sure. But I always go back to the classics.

    Nice goodies. Enjoy!

    The girls are on duty. Don’t question it….lol

    Congratulations on winning! That cube is really cute 🙂

    My obsession with vintage clothing is only cornered by my lack of actual money to spend. I do have a couple really cute dresses … maybe I’ll wear one for fun the next time I come to visit!

  14. Anita says:

    I do like some vintage stuff… it just depends. 🙂
    Great prizes though!!

    I agree…I much prefer your customs agents over the ones I’ve seen. 😉 Great prize, btw.
