When Old is New

Yesterday, I spotted this box of Workbasket Magazines at a neighborhood yard sale. I leafed through the issues and pulled out five that I thought had some good patterns.

When I got home with my purchases, I scanned the pages with interest. The old issues contained patterns and styles that were both dated and dateless. The classic designs can be seen in current knitting magazines, and the dated styles were funky and comical.

By chance, I went back to the yard sale, left my phone number and told them that I would purchase whatever they had left at the end of their sale. Today, they called, and to my surprise, they would not accept payment for the issues. I cannot wait to look at the volumes that date back to the late 1940s. Surely, some of the old patterns are currently stylish and what is old can be considered new.
