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 get my mail here.

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)
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.
Updated often and always fresh, I try to post cool retro and vintage history stuff on my blog that you might like. Check it out below:http://history.writingwithtony.com/

- Tell me about your specialties and your passions.
I loved reading about everyone's specialties and interests.
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.)
