Whilst working through my vintage pattern collection for the perfect patterns for A Stitch In Time Vol II, I read this wonderful advert in the LUX knitting book 1939. Just why does the poor girl not click with the 'gallants'?
If you are looking out for this magazine on ebay take care. There are more reproductions of it than the original. Here's the cover.
Just make sure you read the information carefully before buying.
Next time you don't get asked to dance just remember the lucky nightmare.
