What a lucky find for you, Linda!
Wow - crazy colors Linda.
Well, I finally won a Mary Maxim sweater on eBay - not a high price because it has some soiling and at least one hole, but I think that's all fixable. Very Vermont. Regular holstein colors on the back - but red cows on the front. Red toned holsteins are quite popular now! I may end up fixing it up and giving it to a farmer friend.
I love this thread, Linda!
A Mary Maxim store was located just 45 minutes north of me in Port Huron, MI and I wish I'd visited it more often. It closed only few months ago.
Terrific! Glad I wasn't bidding against you
Still loving this thread. The train one is awesome.
Ok, so from this thread I was able to recognize how fab sweaters can be.
Out in the wild I found these. Matching his/her I assume.
Need help though. Did this company make Mary Maxim sweaters? I thought they were just patterns to knit for some reason.
Thanks for any help. Both have this label.
His zips up.
Mary Maxim has always been about the patterns, sometimes in a full kit. I believe their popularity led to other companies producing RTW sweaters of the same vein. Not everyone had the skills to make their own.
Interestingly, Mary Maxim is still in business
Good lord, I wish I knew how to knit. They're still selling some of their patterns from the 1950s. Love this one!
Thank you Maggie. Appreciated.
I guess my ? on the ones I put on previous page is does anyone recognize these specific patterns?
Is it correct then to say they are Mary Maxim pattern sweaters?
I see some on pinterest with this label noted as Mary Maxim?
I wonder if this company were partners with MM or would add their own flair to the patterns?
I find similar as this as hoedown pattern?
Interesting. These are as found but cannot imagine they have not been washed? They have no odors or anything?
Clean. Thank you.
Those are amazing to find deadstock.
Thank you. So great you have preserved the past like this.
I did not realize this was such a large company till I went researching mine.
So Linda. Have you found all the ones with the Knit Rite label have the striped top of the sweater like mine and yours above?
You have a real knack for finding these!
I want a best friend like Linda's.
I thought I would share these two photo's I took from my McCall's Craft magazines. These are Mary Maxim sweater patterns.
The sweaters are from the Winter 72-73 issue.
LOVE the fish in blue.
