Needlework A-Go Go #13: More Workbasket
Like I said in the last Workbasket post - I've acquired a pile of these old needlework leaflets and had to share some scans.... too many to toss in a single post. So here's some more knitted creations to burn onto your retina. Enjoy.
Did I mention that Workbasket didn't employ professional models? I know it's hard to believe, but, yeah, these girls aren't professionals.
"Teens delight" is right.... only not for the teen wearing it. Local bullies will be the ones delighted.
Okay, buddy. It's a nice sweater.... but could you close your legs. Yeesh!
For the man who needs a sweater vest as skin tight as his slacks.
She looks a bit like one of Santa's elves, but I kind of dig it. I wonder if she's wearing wear pointy shoes.
Nevermind the grotesque lumps all over her sweater - I'm concerned that hat is nowhere near going to accommodate that mighty head of hair.
I'm betting there's a pack of cigarettes in one of those pockets. I was a smoker for years. I can tell.
Perfect attire for studying the Assyrian civilization. I looked some of these words up, and tried to piece together what the hell she's teaching. I'm familiar with Mount Ararat and the Babylonians,... but Kadar and Madai? No clue.
He's got a toothpick for a pointer and a tee-tiny little map.... his mike is massive, though.
Okay, I'll stop here. I'm starting to feel like the Joan Rivers of the vintage knitting world. Time to call it a day.
