Look what I found on my travels through cyber space.

http://www.randomhouse.com/crown/pottercraftnews/mar06/pattern.html

http://www.realisinghumanpotential.com/knitting/patpandv.htm

The first one is a vintage pattern for a shrug, which has been updated. The second is a link to knitted panties and a vest, on the side there are some other free vintage knitting patterns, though with some of them, it's not quite clear if they're vintage or not. I'm also going to post these links up in the free knitting pattern thread under Discussions and Questions.

I also found this site where you can buy vintage patterns. I hadn't seen it before so I'm posting it here, just in case anyone's interested. It's worth having a look at just to see the beautiful designs.

Wow. The wool panties idea is a a little terrifying. Though I have to admit, my first thought was...I wonder if those would be comfortable in a cotton blend??

heehee.

Yeah. I was just looking through some current knitting books and a few of them have knitted panties in them too, in wool. I would at least think that you'd want to sew a cotton gusset in?

They look nice. I just don't know how practical they are.

I wonder if anyone ever knits them?

i think those would actually look incredible in maroon and worn with a belt around the waist.

DO IT.

hard to find a good example of what i mean, but im thinking along these lines:

http://www.viceland.com/int/dd.php?id=289&country=us (the girl with the doofy face)

the silhouette is perfectly cutting edge right now.
