Knitting in Grandmother's Attic

When my grandmother passed away many years ago, each of the grandchildren were allowed to pick one item we wanted to from her possessions. I chose "A Practical Guide to Knitting and Crochet with Beehive & white Heather Knittings Wools" book. I was only 12 years old but already a knitter. This book is filled with old patterns from a company in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada (where my grandmother was from). I'm going to post some of the patterns from this book. I can't imagine anyone would care if I shared them; I mean the book is aboutt 100 years old. I don't know the exact year it was published because the cover was off when I got it. I hope you enjoy these great old patterns. I'll post one every so often. There are some really fund ones and others that are quite strange! Enjoy

That is so amazing...what a great book! We found a book at my hubby's grandparents on how to order a complete home for $500.00. It was from the 1930's. Amazing
Great Post..I enjoyed it
