Vintage Marie Osmond Gift Book

Alright, I saved the best for last today. This one is the most fab find of the month. It's a Marie Osmond birthday gift book and it sure screams the seventies (hey, I should know, I lived through it !).

UPDATE !!! My Marie book was featured on the Etsy Vintage Street Team Blog !!!

Vintage Men's Knitwear Book

Another menswear knitting book is in my collection. This one contains over twenty patterns in classic styles. It gives no publication date, but the designs appear to be from the early sixties. I think they would look great knitted up in some handspun yarns in current colors.

Vintage Childrens' Knitwear Book

I always stock up on great vintage knitwear books, and recently came across this one while out thrifting. It says "Baby Book," but it contains patterns for ages up to pre-teen.
