Vintage Knitting

Just had some fun looking up vintage knitting photos through Google...

Here's a McCall's Magazine article from June 1905, on Knitting as Recreation (cross posted from Not Another Knitblog!):
Then there's this fun looking ad I found here. I never thought giving up a tape measure could be so much fun, but then, I don't really use tape measures. I'll pick up a ruler once in a while, but most of the time I use my fingers to (pretend to) measure inches. Two fingers = 1 inch, no?
Knitting on the plane! Ah, back in the day... Taken from Worn Through.
And here's how I feel about using double pointed needles. Trust me, this kid is grimacing not smiling.
