Old Patterns

So, while we were cleaning out my husbands Grandmother's house this past weekend, we stumbled upons some wonderful old patterns. Some of them date back as late as the mid-thirties! Most are from the 60's and 70's and a few are from the 80's (they are the funniest.) Some of them are crochet patterns, so I will be passing those along to my friend Katie, but there are a lot of knit patterns. I will post them (as I scan them) and anyone who wants a copy can let me know and I will send the scan along to you in PDF format! Some of the best ones are the baby ones, though there are some adorable sweaters from the 40's and 70's....I like the raglan ones the best (of course!)
The scanner at work is out of comission, but as soon as I can go through the books and get the scanner up and running, I will share.
Laters!
