James and I visited the
Discover Vintage Fair on Sunday.
I didn't buy anything but James bought these fantastic vintage black & white knitting patterns!
As most of you know I think my husband James is a professional artist & as we both love vintage his paintings reflect this & he paints mainly vintage pulp-imagery ~ like lovely old knitting patterns!!!
We have so many vintage things in our house, loads & loads of old vintage magazines, cigarette cards, gum cards & of course knitting patterns!
His knitting pattern paintings are really popular & really who doesn't love a good old knitting pattern!
Anyhoo these are the ones he picked up on Sunday.
A Classic V-Neck Sweater
This one is called
Crazy V Sweater
and a cap to match!
How adorable is this girl in this pattern?
Oh my goodness does anyone else think this is bonkers???
This is a
Robin pattern ~ Dual Purpose or Fashion
Ok so I think the fashion hat is really quite sweet but the sports hat & gloves ~ that pose!!
Now anyone fancy a
Stylist & cosy!
Now this one I actually took a fancy too!
Bedcape ~ Spanish Style
Ok so I wouldn't wear it as a bedcape (well I perhaps would!!) but I think it would make a pretty cardigan.
It's when I see things like this that I wish I could knit properly & not only scarves!
And finally ...
A Film Star's Jumper
As worn by Jean Simmons, the J. Arthur Rank star, in the
'Woman in the Hall'
I would actually like this jumper too!
Do pop along to James' website to see more of his artwork
there is even a whole collection for knitting pattern paintings!!!
