After my first WWII event I decided to knit something '40s. Something I could wear with reenactment and would not look bad as 2012 day wear. There are a lot of vintage knitting patterns online and after some searching, I settled for this one. The Victory jumper from the V&A!
I is an easy pattern so far and knits up nicely! I've already finished the front and back piece. Right now I'm knitting the sleeves. This project on Ravelry.
