Vintage Patterns & Hints.

Went to a Garage Sale this morning. Found a couple of Vintage Bargains.
This Pattern Book is a beauty.Has instructions for both Knitting and Crocheting. And not just the basics, shows how to do cables, fair isle and all the fancy stitches. Also includes patterns.
This knitting book has glove patterns for ladies and girls. I can remember my mother knitting us gloves when we were little. Also has  a couple of beret patterns and a  scarf pattern.
I couldn't leave this behind. From 1971, the Australian Women's Weekly's guide to Restoring Junk. I now know how to make my own gesso. Don't know how I coped before.
