Dreaming in Knitty-Colour Trois: Retro Edition the Second

Yet another selection of retro-y goodness. Some 40s and 50s, with some 80s thrown in for good measure.
I would have included them all in one post, but you only get 5 pics per post!

Now, the bagginess of this one I don't much care for. But the collar is cool (but questionable as to whether I can pull it off) and I like the all-over lace.
How incredibly cool are these two 80s gems? I can't believe I'm saying "80s" and "gems" in the same sentence (and spelling gems with a G, not a totally outrageous J).
This top is incredibly sweet! I think it's my favourite of all the ones I've posted so far. The only things about retro patterns is the yarn requirements. Oh yeah, and the unfamiliar sizing.
And the shortness of all the tops.
Other than that, they're all very cool.

Omigod, I totally loved Jem and the Holograms! Secrectly, I always thought it would be cool to be a Misfit though... Okay, I've outed myself, yes I've seen the cartoon recently. My bad. I love the collar on the 80's sweater. Cowls will look good on anyone, for you on a fitted lace sweater= sweetness. Do it. Do it up.

Hahaha, I love the encouragement. You kick ass. As does Jem, and any person who has watched it.
That's one of the greatest 80s cartoon song hooks. Truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

We have the 1st and possible the 2nd season of Jem. I know that sounds smug but its still true.

Hahaha! That's amazing. Is it on DVD? That would be the ultimate :)
