I regularly peruse the knitting magazines in my local WHSmith whilst waiting to catch the train home and usually there isn't a lot to interest me but today - wow - I picked up and and subsequently purchased Knitting Magazine's vintage edition.
The magazine includes several vintage inspired knits - everything from jumpers to capes and a fabulous Miss Marple inspired hand bag. My favourite being an early Thirties style sailor top that I plan on adapting to a shorter late Thirties style. Yes, I'm getting that confident with my knitting skills these days (famous last words...)
There is also an interview with the inspiring knitwear designer Lise-Lotte Lystrup - author of "Vintage Knitwear for Modern Knitters" - one of my favourite knitting books, available on Amazon.
The magazine is available from most branches of WH Smith and via this website.
