I'm gonna knit like it's 1949

I've been getting back to knitting lately (mainly because monthly "stitch n' bitch" meetings with fellow Swedish knitters here in Toronto) and found an amazing book, Vintage Knitwear for Modern Knitters, by Lise-Lotte Lystryp, where she has remade vintage knitting patterns to fit a more modern figure and style. I'm a real snob when it comes to knitting books and find most patterns way too crafty looking for my taste but this book has the most genuine vintage styles I've seen. Get it for Christmas! 

I'm currently working on a riding sweater from 1949.
