I could repeat how crazy things have been: moving to a new city, starting a new career, planning a wedding ... but those are all excuses, really!  So I declare my New Year's Resolution to be a better blogger.  That means more posts, updating you on my projects, suggesting new ones, and my favorite, sharing some of the fascinating selvedge material from my vintage knitting book collection.

Just what do I mean by selvedge material?  Why, those bits on the side, of course.  Collectors of vintage magazines know that often the most fascinating things about them are the advertisements and filler articles.  Knitting magazines are no exception.  Armed with my knew scanner, I can't wait to share some of my favorites with you!  Fair warning: my analysis of this material will stem from a feminist perspective - some of those ads will not be treated nicely (even if the women are dressed fantastically!).

So I hope not to have lost you forever by my absence, and that you'll check back again in a few days to see what I have to offer.
