My mum's fashion drawings from the seventies

As the cold weather sets in, I thought you might like to see some of my mum's knitwear designs from the 1970s. After a fair amount of hassling from yours truly, she finally dug this folder of treasures out of the attic. Some of these are from her days at art college, others are from her time working for Knitmaster producing designs for their Modern Knitting magazine, and some designs were sold to boutiques and to high street store Miss Selfridge. Wanna take a peek?

Okay, so the last one clearly isn't knitwear design, but I love it so!
