Having learned to knit in 1946, I am, by definition, a vintage knitter and love making the old patterns in today's beautiful yarns. The kindle formatting is well done but this book is in dire need of an Index or Table of Contents! I think the best "work around" for this is to place a bookmark or Note on the first page of each pattern. I'm looking forward to other vintage finds.
Excellent value, a real find. Many of the sweaters are quite lovely. Once I get a bit more confident in my sweater alterations/design skills, I will definitely give one or more of these a try. I am not sure how to update these to modern yarns and techniques.The sizes are quite different than modern patterns. For example, size 12 seems to be today's S or XS.I wish there was a table of contents. I added bookmarks for my favorite patterns but I don't know a way to easily navigate to the next bookmark.
Not all of the patterns have promise, but the majority do & they have LOTS of promise. And if you have imagination you can make most of them work with modern yarns & a few small pattern changes. Definitely a keeper!
My children gave me a Kindle for my birthday this year and since I own several floor to ceiling bookcases of knitting and quilting books, I had to do a search for Kindle based knitting books. This is a nice choice. It is original which means that it assumes, as do most books of that era, that you have basic knowledge of all knitting techniques, including construction and finishing, that you will make a gauge swatch and know how to find currently available yarn and figure out your size. Unlike modern adaptations or books, you cannot rely on schematics and must know the basics. That said, the designs are back in style, and the Kindle renders them faithfully.
