Vintage Knitalong


Carpal tunnel syndrome, anyone?
The Kitchener Bitch is hosting a Vintage Knit-Along so you know I couldn't stay away from it. She has the 1940's Morale Builder Stockings that I have posted here and a clump of folks are knitting them. Or talking about knitting them, so I'm doing those too. I should have done those years ago when I got the pattern but I haven't had enough of the right kind of yarn for stockings.

Yes, I do have a handful of vintage metal garters to hold these suckers up.

I got bored with the idea of knitting the lace in the pattern so I'm using a skull & crossbones lace pattern I found here, which I had to redraw so it could be worked upside down since you knit most stockings from the tops down. I reworked the decreases so they're all in the back with a seam stitch down the leg like the previous post's Victorian Silk Stockings and the stocking top is a bit narrower than the pattern says--1" instead of 2". Grey wool/acrylic from a frogged thriftstore sweater. Size 2 needles.

There seems to be an unintentional pirate theme going on in these last three projects. At least this one was vintage.


Arrrrrrrr!
Friday, June 30: I added the ubiquitous garter shot because I thought there should be one.

Arrrrrrr, again.

I must have a time machine or something. I can knit/crochet/spin watching TV but who knows where it all comes from. Plus I'm trying to finish something for the next Knitty deadline (Friday!) so I really Should. Not. Be. Knitting. Stockings.

When school starts back up again it'll all come to a screeching halt I suppose.

you rly do have the most amazing patterns & projects. i love vintage stuff--haven't had the patience to try to knit anything this complex yet (i.e. anything involving shaping for appendages)--but i'm getting there.

and i can no longer bear to watch tv without busy hands anymore. must...do...something...

love that yarn, too.

it's great that you're submitting something to Knitty - can't wait to see it.

I love the skully stockings... when I finally get the yarn to make these stockings (I'm in mail-order hell) I might be tempted to try them that way.

I'm convinced that a combo of metal garters and wicked thick elastic are the way to go.
