1952 and 1953 knitting patterns for men’s socks featuring dice, a smoking pipe, a bowling guy, a fish on a hook, a duck, a moonlit duck with a hunting dog, a horse.. and some license plates.

These patterns had been used, they have pencil notations on them… so some lucky guy actually got to wear these stunning socks!

I wish I were better at knitting, I might make some of these for myself, but it seems endlessly complicated and I can only make scarfs.. hehe.

    INSANELY JEALOUS!!!!

    I am such a severe sock freak that I am completely dying over this. I have no knitting skills either or I’d be wrapping the yarn around those needles so fast you wouldn’t know what hit you. Every single sock here is making me die. If you think that my artifact collection is something you need to open my sock drawers! (which I’m sure Denny will one day.)
