Here is April’s offering- on the cover a green evening top to wear with pearls, 34-36 inch bust and on the back cover a WTF faux fringing design? It is 33-35 bust and looks like a shark took a bite out of the front. Men’s socks in two colours made on double pointed needles and a men’s a spring sleeveless pullover size 36-38 inch chest. My two favorites are the short sleeved striped “to go with your slacks” (which gives us a clue that by 1947 trousers for ladies were quite acceptable) in size 34-36, and a bobbley short sleeved top with a collar in size 34-36 inch bust. Three weird linen collars, similar to designs seen in earlier Christmas issues and finally three cushion designs in quilting or cross stitch.
I do have a copy of March 1947 and had been scanning them chronologically, but for some reason it doesn’t thrill me. The designs are a bit dull, so I have skipped ahead to April, which has patterns I’d like to knit and a couple of “what were they thinking?” items. Everything you’d want from an old knitting magazine!
