I haven't posted a IFTP-post for a while now. Not that I ran out of vintage magazines, I just didn't have the time to take pictures and edit photos. As my summer travelling plans are now cancelled due to my surgery from last week ... I finally have plenty of time to work on way back planned and then abandoned posts like these.
Luckily I feel better everyday now and I feel strong enough to do a stroll to the kitchen on my own, warm some food and finish some computer work. Yeah! Tomorrow the doc will take out the stitches of my belly ... Blahblahblah. Hopefully I will be back on my feet soon.
I don't have many informations about the pictures from the fraction of a magazine I post today. It's a more strange, uncomfortable and a bit embarrassing story behind it. This fraction was part of a collection of knitting patterns from 1935 up to the early 60s. My American husband found those on a local flea market. Doesn't sound so special so far ... But the patterns and magazine parts were collected in a official office folder from the nazi era, with the topic -translated into English- saying: Public Supply. He bought it for 1€, because he wanted me to get the old patterns and he was so curious about the folder itself, as he is not good in speaking German, especially reading old German letters, he didn't know what he brought home.
But the crazy thing about it, is the actual person who stored patterns in this folder from probably the mid 30s up to the end of her life ... not caring about the actual history of this folder she kept her knitting inspirations in. Brrrrrhhh, shivers are running down my back.
We don't know anything about the history of this folder and we don't know what to do with it. We don't like to sell it, we don't want to keep it in our household and we don't want to through it away, because it's a piece of history ... The patterns are sitting with my other vintage fashion magazines and the folder is burried in the back of a cupboard.
The pictures out of this late 40s (maybe up to the earliest 50s) magazine are still absolutely adorable.
