Some Old Men

822

I have made a few cards from vintage knitting patterns.

You can see the documents below, so you know what they looked like before I cut them up.

The no-longer-available Sylko thread is beautiful, giving the smoothest stitching experience I have ever had. Fact not euphemism.

Printed around 1965, is my guess, since the prices are ‘old money’.

I have paired them up with those Waverly envelopes.

All of my work is individually numbered. The camera guy is 822, the older man is 823, and, the pipe man is 824.

They may be used as Father’s Day cards, or they may not, and will start appearing in my Folksy Shop over the next few days.

 

9. Men’s Stuff Patchwork – A Pint

A stylish pint (see below).

Women drink beer now. Find proof here.

Taken from a knitting pattern (Lister N2302) for which I have only the first page. Therefore, I don’t know the photographer or the date, unfortunately. I have searched the internet without success.

This is the ninth square of a patchwork of so-called men’s stuff. It is made from discarded books, magazines, postcards and junk mail (and knitting patterns!). There are sixteen squares in total. You can see the whole piece here.

All of my work is individually numbered, this piece is 799. It can be found in my shop.
