RE-started the Sanquhar gloves, this time in traditional blacka nd white, on the new 1.5 mm very thin, very bendy needles! Very fine, this time, progrees will be slower, but interesting and unputdownable again already!
Hello and welcome to my latest venture in bloggerland. I've been an avid knitter most of my life, but over the past few years have become increasingly interested in historical knitting - recreating patterns, garments and textiles from years gone by, ancient and not so ancient. This will be a place to keep my records of what I make, resources, good websites, information, old knitter's paraphernalia, museum information, re-enactment knitting, those sorts of things. I'm also a spinner, and have done some natural dyeing, and a little weaving, so these skills will ienvitably turn up as well as the knitting. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the past!
Name that blog...........
