Historical Knitting


 
The Jan/Feb 2013 (2013!) issue arrived and it will soon be on newstands.  It is the 7th Annual Historical Knitting Issue and invites us to discover Cranford's knitting ladies.
There are patterns for two projects based on Jane Gaugain patterns published in the mid-1800s.  What fun!
 
There is some serious knitting and many lovely reticules in that photo, yes?
 

"I do love knitting.  You sit and think your own thoughts, and nothing hinders;
you are infinitely lazy, and yet you are
accomplishing a good deal."  
Harriet Prescott Spofford / Harper's Bazaar, November 5, 1892
 
Rush out and get your copy.  How else can you  be both lazy and industrious?
