Knitting Traditions Fall 2015
Enjoy beautifully recreated pieces using techniques and patterns that have travelled across time and space in Knitting Traditions, Fall 2015. Sometimes it happened slowly over the years through multiple makers, other times, necessity caused dramatic shifts in knitting: in wartime, craft can take on a new meaning in urgency. Vintage Fashions and Victorian patterns still inspire us today: projects include a Spencer jacket, shawls, hats, and bags reminiscent of English traditions, plus an array of swatches and edgings from nineteenth-century magazines. Stories and projects included in this issue: The Knitter that Never Was by Christopher John Brooke Phillips, Knit, Purl, Heal by Mary Polityka Bush, Muffatees for a Man by Mary Polityka Bush, Patriotic Knitting Bags and Tools for World Wars by Karen C.K. Ballard, Going in Circles: A History of Knitting in the Round by Eileen Lee, Fair Isle Knitting Across Space and Time by Elizabeth Lovick, Orkney Fair Isle Tam by Elizabeth Lovick... And so much more!
