It's Sweater Time

Winter is upon us.  Cold is in the air and the knitting needles are working furiously indoors.  Here are a few ideas for you crafty readers from some vintage sweater patterns I just picked up at our Friends of The Library Sale.

If there's one thing I learned about sweaters from these patterns is that they make ladies feel special - really special.  Here is a young lady brought to the height of ecstasy as she is draped in in the two-tone pink of her Brunswick Tempo:

Another young woman is here wrapped in post-afghasm bliss, leaving the knitter to wonder where her other arm is hiding:

Sweaters bring happy couples together, whether they be this young couple in their matching outfits for the annual Luling Watermelon Thump...

... or the handsome couple on the slopes (if any of you readers can knit me that sweater with an Acapulco cliff diver in place of the skier, there's good money in it for you)...

...or the sharply dressed pederast and catamite:

And I'm sure there's one thing you'll agree with after you see these pictures below: vintage sweaters bring men together and make them long for each other's rods, pipes, wieners, squirting DDT canisters, double-barreled guns and unsheathed sabres:








Sweaters also bring families together and help keep the kids quiet about their daddies in the closet.

I found my needles. Now I am frantically looking for pictures of the cliff divers at Casa Bonita so I can be the first to craft that sweater for you. Ahh sweet $$$$'s

If your mom makes you that sweater, I insist as a faithful reader of your blog, that you post a picture of yourself wearing the sweater. Here's hoping your Christmas wish comes true!

Your loving cousin,

Maah, don't! If you make him that sweater, you'll turn him gay!

I choked on my lunch when I got to that unsheathing the sabre photo.

"Afghasm" made this old poet giggle.

I just learned that you are the father of your sister's chickens. Isn't THAT against the law? You'd know better than me, but it sounds a bit suspect (on several fronts) to me. Angie

Nothing says grilled weiners to me than a couple of guys in cardigans.

Hilarious! I found this through the Pitch, and I'm so glad I did! What are they up to with those swords?!

i'm imagining that the skier on the ski sweater is wearing a sweater with a skier on it, and that skier is wearing a sweater with a skier on it, and so forth. my mind is blown.
