Not your typical hellcat biker chic and

Vintage Barbie Knits: 2nd Generation

I actually remember buying these in the late 1970s at the Newport (NH) Apple Pie & Crafts Fair. I think the prices were $2.50 a set!  These are classic styles and still popular. They survived the moths only because they are made in yester-year acrylics.  One sweater top needs attention and now I know how to mend it!

BGITWWW asked "Please Nan, will you knit something that isn't Mama's or Auntie's and please knit it Fancy?"  Sticka till Barbie has some fabulous party clothes patterns and I am thinking of something in Lobser Pot cashmere and am on the search for nice beaded silk blends (that will stand the test of time).

The red hoody was my favorite sweater for Barbie (and now I want one like it for me!!) I also vividly remember the pink skating outfit...I wanted one like it.

I can understand BL wanting her very own outfits, though. Mine weren't sparkly.
