Hyperbolic Victoriana

Hi. I'm back. Still baking bread, still hooking, still knitting. And enjoying a glass of Seghesio Zinfandel, if you must know. Thanks for indulging me in my wallowing last week.

So I cooked up this pattern in my little head the other day, and lo and behold, it's so easy, the mother's done already. So I'm in the process of recreating it with the goal of actually making the pattern available for free right here. (Someone should check the temperature in hell right now - I'm just sayin'). Working on one in red right now. Stay tuned...

On an unrelated note, I had to go through a pile of vintage pattern mags today and came across some of my favorites in the process. I should preface this with telling you that the fashions of the 1910s are among my favorites. With that, I share these beauties with you...

I love your neckwarmer. Its functional but has a really vintage flair to it!

That 2nd top (filet mesh) is wonderful. I'd love to know which pattern book it's in.
