up for grabs today are these two lovely good housekeeping needlecraft magazines. spring/summer 1973 and fall/winter 1973-74.

the winter one in particular has some very nice classic looking 1970’s sweaters. there were at least two i though i might knit. however, i chose to photograph this page :)

and the summer issue – ah the poor summer issues. not much wool happening there, but some nice mohair. several classicly cut cardigans and this bolero ?!? (i had no idea they had such history!)

i love the loops of yarn that make it look a bit furry. comment if you’d like a chance to win!

  1. Why was orange so popular in the seventies? I remember I had this awful poncho in orange and green plaid with lots of fringe. We thought we were so cool!

  2. Ooh, general needlework magazines! I notice one says embroidery; that reminds me that I really need to practise more and get my satin stitch to look a lot more even…

  3. LOVE the lemon sweater with the fluff. It would be perfect to wear for Easter as I serve my famous : ) lemon daffodil cake for dessert.

  4. It is interesting how things come in and out of fashion. The fluff and poof is definitely back, I see amongst the teenagers in our neighbourhood. I am pretty sure they would love the bolero!

  5. Wow, do the craft books bring back memories!!! My mother would buy them all time and then my sister & I
    would pick out projects for her to make. We had some great granny square items in high school. And now those items are making a return. Love the yellow bolero, makes me feel spring is on its way.
