This booklet issued by Chadwick's Red Heart Yarns had me at 'hello'.  Such phenomenal artwork shouldn't be sequestered to needlework pamphlets - it needs to be put on a pedestal where it can be seen and everyone.

I did a little research (and by 'little' I mean 2 minutes) and found that Mary Mayo was an accomplished main stream illustrator, but there's precious little information about her.  Here's a few pages from this 1952 booklet titled "Everyone Wears Sweaters".  Enjoy.

Holy crap.  The blonde is totally digging the girl in blue..
