today’s picks for the blogiversary are from the late 1960’s/early 70’s if i had a guess. two are labeled.
cable knits for men and women, published by bear brand and fleisher yarns. vol. 78, $1.00. note that the older edging books in the last post were originally 15 cents. book no. 120: Bernat Cables and Raglans for the family… sweaters and coats (revised edition). originally $1.00. i like both of these, but especially the first. mohair + cables? great.
Bernat Men, $1.25, Book No. 169 (c)1970 and from the february 1964 issue of Woman’s Day – our brilliant, international (hear the drum roll?) Sweater Collection 1964. The Woman’s Day one is probably my fave of the set. it has a really fabulous polka dot intarsia number in it, as well as several very nice colorwork sweaters. also, my personal weakness, embroidery throughout textured knitting.
