What I´m knitting

Ok, the following might not seem spectacular to an experienced knitter, but this is my very first knitting project. A brioche stitch scarf for men. I found it in the magazine "Beyers Handarbeit und Wäsche 11/1954". So far I´ve got 20cm knitted, that means there are only 90cm left. Yay. Oh, and I already made two mistakes. I´m the greatest!

Coffee and cake

Another picture out of the shoebox. I don´t know who these people are, but they all wear some great hats. I especially love the one of the lady in the center. The cannikins are nice, too.

A girl and a dog

I found this in the old shoe box full of pictures that belonged to my grandparents. I can´t seem to find her in any of the other photos. The picture says "August 1952".

Frauenhilfe Issue 12

Is there a better way to start a blog than with lots of magazine scans? Yes? No! Thatswhy I decided to share with you what the mail man brought me today: Frauenhilfe 12/1950.

This reminds me of something. But what? Oh right,
bith control.
