I can remember bringing them home a few years ago after my dad died and we had to clear the house.
They were obviously mums because i found her name and address on one of them. From a young age i can remember her with a pair of knitting needles in her hand either knitting sleeveless pullovers for dad or cardigans for my sister and i . When we left home she knitted for herself and the grand children.
I found not only the fashions of that time fascinating, but also the hairstyles.
Its funny how fashion of that time has all come back again from fair-isle knitwear to clothes and hair do's.
The Women's Weekly was among the patterns, Its dated April 1949 My twin sister and i were born in December of that year at the hand written address, It was probably delivered by a news paper boy.
