Knit your way through history as Knitting Traditions goes "Out and About!"

Wraps, bags, chemisettes, arm warmers, slippers, socks, hats, and a muff with a hidden pocket take you anywhere in style. Read about the men and women strolling around Paris in the nineteenth century, then knit tiny dolls dressed in period clothing. Discover the knitterly side of British novelist Penelope Fitzgerald, a woman who published her first books when she was nearly 60 years old. Follow Cynthia LeCount Samaké to the Andes in the 1970s, when she began her seminal research on Peruvian knitting. Travel back to the Middle Ages, then fast forward to Victorian England as Laura Ricketts translates stained glass rose windows into a beautiful tam. See how Victorian knitters appropriated muffs and lacy head coverings, then make your own.

With six wraps, five bags, and other projects, you'll find anything from lace to cables to colorwork.

Another fascinating edition of Knitting Traiditions. I love reading articles on the history of knitting and bygone fashions. I have already earmarked one of the shawl patterns for my To Do list. Like your previous reviewer I wish it was available on subscription. I look forward to the next edition Review by Rosalind (Posted on 6/14/2016)
Fascinating reading for knitters who love history and expanding their love of knitting in its place in history and culture. I only wish that the Knitting Tradtitions was available by subscription.
Like Piecework, Knitting Tradition's pays respect to the knitters who came before us and created a rich history , along with some beautiful pieces of work. Knitting is examined through literature, economics, and society of various times. and cultures. The articles accessible and for the most part well written and researched with a pattern accompanying articles. Fascinating reading for knitters who love history and expanding their love of knitting in its place in history and culture. I only wish that the Knitting Tradiitions was available by subscription.
