Ad from Fall-Winter 1967-68 McCall's Needlework & Crafts magazine:



"The tip-to-total look"
"Yours with RAV-ON yarns of ANTRON and SAYELLE"

Hmm... Do you think they're actually knitting those outfits they have on?  (Doubt it!)  Smiley

I don't think they're really knitting onto their own clothing...but I do wish I had those stockings! Wink

I also love the tights, I have one pair of really funky tights (blatantly machine-knit  or by a crazy person) that are a fishnet type pattern in pink yarn. Why don't they make tights like that anymore?

I agree, it's too bad.  However, tights like these are for sale. >cough< eBay >cough<

Hmm, I imagine knitting a garment while wearing it would get rather tricky...

The green and purple dirl looks like she's going to poke her eye out!

My 9 yo just asked me "are they weaving it while they're wearing it? Why are they doing thet?"

Why indeed! Undecided

I've heard of people having themselves sewn into their clothes because the clothing is too tight...but knitting yourself in? That's...different.  Cheesy

Thanks a lot ! Now I know why I loooove colorful tights ! It must be some sort of pre-born trauma ! My mum must have seen too much of these when she was pregnant. And then when I came to this wonderful world on june 1968, the damage was done : orange, apple green and violet would rule my life ! Grin
