Some of my favorite knitting patterns out there are vintage ones created by Knit-O-Graf. The motifs–which appear on everything from cardigans to Christmas stockings–are offbeat and playful with just the right amount of kitsch. Look ’em up on eBay today for some yarny fun. Link.

    When my kids were young, I knitted them mittens with faces similar to that girls face on blue socks. Since I’ve lived at that time in Russia, where those patterns weren’t available, I created pattern myself.

    Hi Jenny!
    It’s me Ellen, your naturally curly friend, formerly of L.A., presently of upstate New York.
    My mom made lots of Knit O Graf sweaters for me when I was a wee one. She saved all of her patterns and I have them all. One I really love is called “Jitterbug” and it’s sized for adults. It’s got a couple dancing with musical notes all around. I will make that one day!
