1940s Fantasy

1940s Fantasy by Asplund

Must have been bitten by the jitterbug or something - here's a fiancée in progress for the 1940s cardigan I made a couple of months ago. This too is 2ply wool from Kampes.

I found inspiration in knitting magazine from 1947.

Speaking of inspiration, have you seen Ylva's cuffs with carnations? Isn't she a bit like Midas, turning cuffs into gold by touching them with needle and thread?

Thanks for comments on my previous post!
Ann: yes, I will be teaching twined knitting at Fanø! Look forward to seeing you there - and thanks again for providing contact with the arrangers!

Oh gosh! Den där var snygg, och snabbt går det också som en jitterbugg, synd att man blir så varm att dansa annars skulle den vara perekt ! Tackl för din fina kommentar om mina muddar ( rodnar lite ) :-)

Flot vintage-model!

det lyder rigtig godt, at du kommer til Fanø med tvebinding.
Jeg glæder mig allerede!

I love the design set into the bed of reverse stocking stitch. And the colour is gorgeous. Gee, we have become generally bigger than we were in the l940's. Or am I just looking at myself? Beautiful work.

Asplund, why did you not carry the body pattern onto the sleeve?

That's going to be lovely. (But can you explain the phrase "fiancée in progress"?) Clever you to remake an older pattern.
