TBT: Thanksgiving, 1967

You may be expecting a greeting card or a photograph, but I stumbled across this vintage ad and couldn’t resist. It’s sort of related to this blog – knitting, turkeys, a throw back to the year my parents were married.

Nobody knits for Sue Brett like Alamac
Count your blessings. Sue Brett serves up a new feast in Alamac’s 80% Orlon 30/20% wool Shallyknit®. It’s a delectable A-shaper with inverted pleats and co[ntrast] binding. In gold with shocking trim; lime with pink; turquoise with orange. Sizes 5 to 15. About $26. At Arnold Constable, New York; Jordan Marsh, Boston; Marshall Field, Chicago; Gus Mayer, all stores; Woodward & Lothrop, Washington, D. C.; and other fine stores. Fabric by Alamac Knitting Mills, Inc, 1412 Broadway, New York, New York.
I wish I’d found this earlier; I could be wearing this very comfortable looking outfit today. Maybe next year.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating! And Happy Thursday to those who are not – one more day to the weekend!
