Ladies Knee-Caps, 1885

My only comment is that people's knees must've been frickin' cold during the Victorian days because I've run across at least a dozen different knee-cap patterns for both men and women. You'd think with all the flannel undies, voluminous skirts and petticoats, and woolen stockings that they'd be happy for their knees to get a little breeze now and again.

This one I particularly liked because it looked creepy and orthopedic, and I thought if it was knitted in black it could be part of a Victorianindustrial getup, or it could even drift casually over into steampunk mad-scientist territory. Or something.

Maybe I like these damned things a little too much.

*scampers away*

Oh - these ARE excellent kneecaps! Like you, I've found easily 100 Victorian kneecap patterns, but this one has a strap. These are as wonderful as any I've seen...

This is the de-lux model!

Oh yeah, these bad boys have a strap and lace, making them both feminine and a wee bit kinky.

Originally, Pillow Pets started off as being a more functional take on the usual stuffed toys. They were more than just a cuddly pet toys for children, these Pillow Pets became a pillow for little children to use when sleeping. My pillow pets nutty elephant quickly grew into a hugely popular cuddly toy for children and the range of My Pillow Pets quickly expanded from 6 toys to about 20 as the company stands today.

I believe the purpose of the knee covers was not so much for warmth as so better hide the fact they even had knees so as to not inflame passions.

Remember these are people who thought table legs were too erotic. *grins*
