knitting book from deptford market

I had to pop over to the post office and on the way, noticed this book sitting on the pile of books in one of the bric-a-brac stalls, for 50p. I can't wait to show it to my studio mates, Lauren and Ellen, super-knitterwomen. I love the endpapers and the pictures made me laugh.

'Knitted Garments for the Family' by Dorothy M. Beckett. Odhams Press Ltd, Long Acre, London - oddly, it lists no year of publication that I can find, just 'Copyright S.450.T.'



I should do some drawings from this book, they'd be good fun. But first I must make my comic for my WoM submission. (Have you drawn a partygoer for the front cover yet?)

Ha ha!
... Wait, don't you wear a tie while gardening? You'd hate for the neighbours to think you were letting down the side or something. Have some pride, man.

Cool, thanks, Dave! I don't even know how to knit, but I love all the period photos and typefaces, they're brilliant.
