Old Things

Lately, I've been fascinated with old vintage crafts and notions. Last week I went to a few antique stores and ended up buying some pretty cool items. I found this small how-to book on knitting sweaters. The book was copyrighted in 1945, at the very start of the baby-boomer era. It was very cool to observe the basic style of the time in this book.

Notice how the pages offer a built in tape measure!

I was pretty pleased to have come across some old sewing notions.

Can you believe that this entire jar of old LARGE buttons was only $1! When knitting season comes this year, these old buttons will be put to good use!
