    The shoulderline looks pretty wide for a woman's Susan, how does the measurement compare to others you've had?

    You sure are making me entertained with these sweaters. Such fun.
    I have a 1940s catalog and quite a few knitting and crochet small magazines I am going to look thru.
    I am also noticing a trend in the real world shops now of cute sweaters with designs now.

    Linda, you have such an amazing collection of sweaters and related items (love the old b&w pics). Not to mention all of your other equally fabulous collections.

    Have you authored a book on the topic? Or possibly authoring one now? Because if you haven't contracted to publish yet, you really, *really* should.

    I concur. I think a book is needed and would be fabulous.

    Not remotely in the same class but I thought Linda would appreciate this 1980's Debenhams Classics jumper I found yesterday:

    It is the same on the back. I love the way the design makes your arms the two other 'legs', so it either appears as a standing/pouncing tiger, or one of those floor rugs.
