I got a knitting book from the 30ies from the BF. It has tiny illustrations all over, like a dinosaur, a mom spanking her kid (!), a small dog having a tea party, some boxers and lots more. My favorite is this one, a person making a mummy! Awesome.
I am also currently making a sleeve on very thin yarn and needles 2 mm. It's taking forever... People who made a living from this in the past has my never dying respect.
