K is for: Knitting. Another very popular part of the magazine (see also “J”). My boss termed the phrase “The knitted handcuffs.” Meaning, once you had settled in and found your niche on the magazine, it would take something quite extraordinary to winkle you out of your comfort zone.
Years ago, there was a rather cheeky greetings card doing the rounds. It read: “What’s the difference between Cosmopolitan, Vogue and Woman’s Weekly?” Answer: “Cosmo tells you how to have an orgasm, Vogue tells you how to have one in style and Woman’s Weekly tells you how to knit one!” Our knitting editor was so taken with it, she bought a job lot to send out to everyone. I still have mine somewhere.
