I am joining up with the lovely Melody from the House on the side of the Hill for Tuesdays treasures. Melody shared with us an old book which reminded me of some old magazines that I had tucked away.
These belonged to my dear SIL who passed away from cancer just a little over 4 years ago. Sylvana was a prolific knitter, and me being the only other knitter in the family inherited her boxes of yarn, needles and pattern books and among them were these old woman's magazines.
The first one is the Woman's weekly and is so unlike our thick glossy magazine of today, in fact I think it was a true weekly. The date of publication of this one is September 26th 1970.
The magazine is filled with short stories, recipes and knitting patterns and has the regulars like ads for Flora margarine, Alcan alfoil and Berlie Bras.
The other two are both New Ideas and again I think Sylvana kept them for their knitting and crochet patterns.
