Another new publication has landed on the teacart here at the shop. Take a peek inside the Spring 2016 issue of Knitting Traditions.
Knitting Traditions looks at the craft from a historical perspective, focusing on techniques and styles from all over the world and across time.
Pick up Knitting Traditions to read about one scholar’s research on Peruvian knitting, or a designer’s process from inspiring stained glass window to knitted tam. Also look to this unique magazine for unusual patterns, like tiny dolls dressed to stroll in 19th century Paris, or lace shawls inspired by head coverings from Victorian England.
The “Head in the Clouds Scarf” below was adapted by Carol Huebscher Rhoades from a pattern appearing in Weldon’s Practical Needlework, a British magazine from the late 1800’s. It’s shown in Shibui Silk Cloud, a luxurious, shimmering blend of mohair and silk, which can of course be found in the lace weight section here at the shop.
Look for Knitting Traditions among the latest publications on the teacart, and pick it up for an interesting read. See you at the shop!
