Beware of knitty, though -- the patterns/articles they have can sometimes be frighteningly bizarre/trendy!

Oh, that must be the same book I mentioned -- mine's also from the '40s, with the same color scheme -- I notice the ones I pointed out on ebay were all '50s editions, and green and red, but I expect they're otherwise identical.

I seldom make the patterns (except for Fetching and one other I can't call to mind at the moment).

But that's not why I'm there. The technique articles are excellent, and the people are among the nicest I've ever encountered online.

I was thinking it was the same book, too. Very useful!

In fact, I just picked one up for someone I know through the office; she just quit smoking and wants something to keep her hands busy...she says. Beware, it can be an Addiction, Sue!

Hi all!

--------------------
Newsletter Announcement (free, no ads, no spam, no junk)

study We’ve been toiling away down in the retro workshops to bring you the first ever newsletter, the Retro Review. Now, being a total amateur at this, but with the shining courage of those who have gone before, I should have the newsletter to press here very shortly.


Update...I'm working on this...really I am. I've got a domain name and a brand-new set of software and am thinking about registering an ISSN. There's a few articles in the can, but I still need to do a few more. For all of those who indicated they wanted one, hang on! If you are new and didn't see the post the first time, I think it's a page or two somewhere around here. In any event, soon, I promise! It will be similar to my blog, but unique articles and information, not just recycled stuff.

See ya....

Tell me about your specialties and your passions.

I loved reading about everyone's specialties and interests. Smile

I have a few passions. Mainly anything from the WW2 era, both American and British, with emphasis on style, homefront experiences, women's experiences, film and radio. I was raised on classic film and the love is still with me- for me, classic means it was made before 1960, and if it's classic horror, more the better. I have a love of all things vintage Halloween. I collect and listen to radio shows from WW2 and before, primarily, including news broadcasts from the war. I also have a big love for soundies. I love to cook and while I don't own any vintage cookbooks yet, I spend a lot of time looking at ration cookery books online.

(I almost the same avvy as yours, Kittenwithawhip! I love that image.)
