Knitting Patterns and Blogger's Elbow

Again, the mosaics have come in handy! I can show you all of these great knitting patterns in one go. I love these old patterns, the photos are just so funny! I went on flickr today and there are just hundreds more waiting to be explored. This is my small collection from the jumble sale on Saturday, source of the boots and other bargains! This lot were 50p, well worth it I think!
Below are some of my favourites... I love the expression on the man's face as he tries his wife's weird anaemic looking cake! The cardigan is somewhat irrelevant to the action! I suppose he could stash the rest in the pocket until she is not looking, before getting rid of it to the dog.

I love this one because I am unsure about the relationships of these three be-tank-topped young things. Just what is going on? Also, are they in Greece? If so they might be too hot.

These two just make me happy! They are clearly having a great time on their boat and for once the jumpers have a purpose.
This is a little cushion I made yesterday to rest my elbow on when I am on the computer. It gets really painful resting on the hard table so I have invented the blogger's elbow cushion! It is 15cmx10cm and so far is doing a good job! I think I have invented the condition but I bet if I google it someone else has done so too!

I looked and Blogger's Elbow is only one of many sad conditions to be endured by bloggers-look here to see more...

I love your little cushion! Your thought of the man putting the cake in his pocket ..... if Malcolm's Dad gets a sandwich for his tea that he doesn't like - he smuggles it back to his room and throws it out the window! We can't convince him the staff won't tell him off for not clearing his plate!!

Your pillow is a great idea! So cute!

Whew... glad some of those styles are out!

I had a good laugh at some of those pictures - who wears a tie on a boat! And the menage-a-trois young man - is he truly wearing a cravat? Oh dear, they had better get rid of him fast. PS Love your little cushion - it is so clever! I've noticed that I do not rest my arms on the table at all - my laptop is perched on the edge of the table - but I'm beginning to think that it might be partially to blame for my shoulder and neck problems - I've just realised that I keep my arms lifted while I type - all the time! with no support!

Hi, Sarah! Sorry you have blogger's elbow! Your pillow looks lovely though! :-)

Oh those patterns are priceless! So funny. The trio are by far my favourites - everything about them seems just a tad off. Great finds!

And I think you might be on to something with your blogger's elbow cushion... very cute! And glad it's helping :)
