vintage knits

because i don’t already have enough projects on the needles, i’ve joined the vintage knit-along. i love vintage clothing & vintage patterns, but have yet to try & knit anything vintage. and once again, there’s the offer of prizes… i loves me some prizes! now i just have to a) finish something that i’m already working on so that i can start this knit-along and b) find the right pattern!

i’m thinking of these:
“handsome morale builder stockings” (to inspire the troops, perhaps?) although i may modify them slightly to make them more of a knee-high sock. & then there’s the question of what yarn to use – clearly, if you’re making them stocking height, you’d want something pretty soft – no scratchy wool up there, thanks!! i may just finish them in time for the damp & chilly scottish winter, given the rate at which i’m managing to finish things at the moment…
