Space Age Vintage Knitting

Hi everyone!

One of my favorite things is vintage ads. One of my other favorite things is crocheting and yarn crafts. I so love when all of my favorite things come together to become one super awesome favorite thing. It's like scooping dark chocolate frosting right out of the can with a peanut butter cookie. (Sorry, I'm pregnant and hungry.)

Anyhoo, I saw this awesome 1955 ad on Ravelry and just had to share it with you. Presenting...

Are there any current yarn ads that come close to being this cool??? :D

  2. That is possibly the coolest ad I've ever seen! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I don't know....I am sure that Vanna MUST do some pretty cool yarn ads too!! LOL!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee that ad! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

    This ad is so cool Maggi. I do not think I have seen any modern wool ads come even close but then again, wool probably isn't a popular project as much as it was back then.
