Recently, a customer donated a giganto box of old knitting magazines to our shop. (We’re talking 1950s through 1970s here — golden years indeed.) Their pages are filled with nonstop entertainment — from vintage knitting, crochet, and needlework patterns to adorable recipes (“Cauliflower and Cheese,” for example) to the most absurd body-slimming advertisements you’ve ever seen. Each week, we’ll post a tidbit from one of these magazines to brighten your Wednesday afternoon. Leave a guess as to what issue this tidbit came from (Month, Year) in the comments beneath this post on our Facebook page. If you have the closest guess by midnight tonight, we’ll pop the hard copy issue in the mail to you and it’s yours to keep. Ready? Go!
