This is a Wonderfully Awesome book that my friend Dani bought for me at an Antique store in Petaluma (CA). The book is Copyrighted 1942 and by Alice Carroll "Formerly Designer at Alice Maynard and Consutant on the American Red Cross Knitting Manual" This book has just about EVERYTHING. And being the 40's enthusiast that I am, this book is perfect for me. Every time I flip through it I find patterns that I want to make -mostly gloves, stockings, and sweaters. But there are cute hats, afghans, and men's sweaters. See below for a couple patterns that I thought illustrated the feel of the book.  Posted by Picasa

Awesome old-fashioned pattern - this is just one of many! There are tons of 'em - from whole 40's style women's dresses and suits, to cabled stockings and gloves -to army and navy sweaters, men's swim trunks, etc! Posted by Picasa

One of the fun patterns from my new book! Posted by Picasa
