More vintage knitting patterns
So my awesome fiancé teaches a drawing class at a community centre not far from where we live, and today he made an amazing discovery. A whole table of Golden Hands magazines! Golden Hands? I hadn't heard of it either, but it appears to be a serial for the housewife to knit, embroider and crochet her way through life - circa 1970. They were 10 cents each (with an honesty box collection) and he found a 20 cent coin in the footwell of the car to buy me some!
He thought the one with the knitted wedding coat was particularly suitable.
Look at that hood! I definitely won't have time to make one of these for the wedding, but maybe if I knit one in green I can dress up as an elf from Lord of the Rings...
He suspects that some old lady is having a serious spring clean - he says there's about 50 stacked on a table.
I want this teacup. I love blue teacups.
And I really really want to knit the chevron scarf - but it says I need to get the pattern from chapter 23 - which I don't have!
I think one night this week we'll be taking a visit to the community centre, to find chapter 23 specifically... I better find some spare change!
