I have this cool mag I found at a garage sale. Niiiice patterns inside, including some men's aran sweaters nicer than anything I have found online so far.

I was wondering if anyone knew if this is the same Knit It magazine we have today?

Looks like the first issue of the current Knit It! magazine was December 2001. BH&G puts it out.

I remember seeing Twiggy "back in the day"...

Hope that doesn't make me old? :doh:

Actually, the cover says "Number 5". And only $0.50 for the issue!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone have any idea if it's worth anything? It's in good condition, just a little wear on the spine, but it's all intact.

That is so cool! I have some old knitting magazines, but not that old. I was eight in '67 and wish I'd been old enough to experience 1969. What an incredible year that was. All you kiddies posting here missed out, same as your moms. ;)

Lu, is Elizabeth Zimmerman mentioned in your book?

It was great being a teen in the late 60's, but I wasn't an active participant in some of the more controversial topics of the era. Thank god. I like my brain cells thankyouverymuch! :teehee:

Arielluria (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/member.php?u=15825) An item like that, with little wear and with a notable person on the front could be worth a reasonable amount to say a pop or rock museum or a fashion museum, if not an individual collector. Sothebys in the UK may be able to tell you if there is any market for such items. I would include an image with your communication.
If Sotheby's say no then look up fashion and pop museums and try there. If nothing else you may receive some interesting responses.

Twiggy is why models are all tall skinny sticks! Designers forget women have curves and aren't tall, in fact, they forget we come in all sorts of different sizes and shapes!

That being said, she is a stunningly beautiful woman. I can only wish I will look that beautiful at 58. :teehee:

Frankly I don't see the beauty in Twiggy. She has buggy eyes and absolutely NO FEMALE SHAPE! I like my pear shape thank you very much.
:flirt:

I will scan an interior page in which she is wearing another knitted item and photographed from the side. I've seen 10-year old boys with better looking bodies!:roflhard:

Twiggy is before my time, but I've always been into old stuff, I was into big band 40's music when I was 10 (circa 1977). Needless to say, I was alone in my music choice among my peers. :teehee:

Have you seen her now?

Take a look at the second link I sent - she's got curves, in fact, she looks a bit peary to me, and some meat on her face so her eyes actually seem to fit her face...

I didn't like her much back then because of the same reasons, but WOW has she aged well!

Here's that interior page showing Twiggy in profile......yuck! I can't imagine any man would be attracted to the concentration camp look.........:roll:. She's the one on the upper right.

Maybe they call her Twiggy because she was a twig? Sorry. I wasn't born until '76 and had never heard of her. I'm sure my mom knows who she was! She graduated HS in '65 so it's right in her era!
