More Vintage Knitting Books

I thought I would share the last of the photos that I took of the vintage patterns that my niece, Kylie, gave me.

Sadly this one didn't have a cover.
I love the classic look of some of these items.
Some of the patterns look lovely and would fit in quite nicely with today's fashion. In one of the books there was even a pattern called Jo-anne. I had to laugh when I read the name. It even had the right spelling too. I have seriously thought of knitting it but for now I am concentrating on crochet. I don't seem to have a lot of patience for knitting at the moment.
Do new Mums put bootees on their babies these days?
I have found a few books like these on ebay. I almost put a bid on them, almost :D

That baby vest/singlet I finished last week was from one of these books. You can go here to see what it looked like if you haven't seen it already :)

Time to go do some more crocheting before I need to go out again. I have another appointment with my Diabetes Educator today. I can't wait to show her that app on my phone that allows me to keep track of everything. And of course to show her how good my BGL's are.
