My mother had got old Omin käsin magazines (translated: with my own hands). The magazine had four issues per year. Oldest of them was a sample issue from 1940 and newest was from 1953. Issues were missing and several issues had lost covers or other pages. I took photographs of interesting knitting articles and the photos are as a collage above. The magazines had articles about interior decortion, other handicrafts and for example national costumes. Mary Olki and Aino Hausmann have both written one article featured in the picture. There is more information about the magazine in Finnish in the link.
Tällainen myssy olisi kiva tehdä. Otin kuvan sen teko-ohjeestakin, mutta enpä sitten muistanut ottaa kuvaa mistä mahtavasta seitkytluvun tai kasari-lehdestä tämä on. Korvaisin kyllä N-kirjain raidan jollakin muulla.
Päätin koittaa blogat marraskuussa joka viikko, katsotaan kuinka käy.
I decided to blog each week in November, let's see how it goes.
