10 The Modern Priscilla Magazine Home Needlework and Everyday Housekeeping (June, 1917)
Boston, Massachusetts The Priscilla Publishing Company 1917 soft cover Good-plus

This one's surprisingly hard to find and in quite good condition -- just a bit of isolated edge wear and a superficial crease to lower front corner to detract. No names and tightly bound.

Offers instructions for clothing, plus info on parts of the machine and novelty tricks and variations. Booklet measures 8-1/2"x11" and has 32 pages.

16 Hargreaves, Kim Rowan The Cork Collection (2002)
West Yorkshire, England Rowan 2002 Card cover Very good condition 
I'm not a knitter, but I love finding issues from Rowan because they're so attractive. This one is called the Cork Collection which I thought might be designs from Ireland. But research indicated that the photography was done in the Scottish Highlands, so I don't have a back-up guess. It doesn't matter anyway -- the designs are lovely and so are the models. There are fifteen designs in all with all patterns at the back of the book. Measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 32 pages.S HIPS for $2 Media Mail in the U.S
