Beehive Steps to Knitting

During my Easter visit with my parents, my mom gave me a bag full of her old knitting needles and this Beehive Steps to Knitting book. In the early 60s mom learned how to knit from this book, and twenty years later I used it to knit a scarf and hat. Check out the haircut in the second picture. At one point in my young life I had bangs like that. My mom's grade one picture reveals this very haircut. Now, here's the most exciting part of this book...
Tucked inside the Beehive book were my crochet instructions from grade 5: the pages still smelled of the chemicals that were used for copying. A bonus is seeing my grade 5 hand-writing once again so many years later. Thanks mom!
