The Haul - photo heavy
30 knitting magazine & pamphlets from the late 50's - 1972
A treasure of the good & goofy.
Knitted suits on size US#6 needles - 6 sts to the inch.
Note the holy (to me) ruffle on the orange suit,
Boys, boys boys! With manly objects, of course.
I actually like this sweater. But, what I really like is that he's decked out to ski & is standing next to a barbecue in someone's backyard.
Is that a knitting needle in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
The knitted bun cover.
Always tuck your sweaters into your pleated dress pants to ski!
Vogue from 1968. Chunky knits were big. Is "Instant Fashion" is the 1968 code for "Quick and Easy"?
Please note the cost of the magazine 75 cents.
I just bought Vogue Knitting - $6.99. WTF? No I didn't look at the price before I checked out & no I wouldn't have bought it, had I seen it.
I've been ranting about the price of knitting magazines (and books) to my near & dear- like they care. But who can afford to knit these days?
Please no speeches or spreadsheets on the cost of producing magazines & books. Who's making the mad cash? Not any designer, knitter or editor that I know.
Sorry, off of the soapbox.
Eddie Albert got tired of his Green Acres.
Love, love , love this photo (sweater's cute too). She looks like her girdle is so tight she can't sit up all the way.
The best? If you loose a knitting needle you could use one of her eyebrows - ummmm pointy!
