I am wearing a knit hat -- and I know just the one! It's from "The Beginner's Book and the A-B-C's of Knitting by Bernat." I think I still have a copy. Sharon & Karen's jackets were red and purple.
Knee socks! Same Santa. I love how lightly he's holding Sharon's arm, but has a very sure grip on Michael! I'm sure we were at H.C. Prange Co. in Appleton. Loved that store, especially at Christmas, especially then... when I was a kid.
