Another new magazine is here to tempt and inspire: 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.
In this issue, you can read all about ganseys, lace, Civil War era knitting, and more, and knit patterns informed by these traditions as well.
The shawl above, as well as the shawl on the cover of this issue, were designed in the Orenburg lace tradition. If this piques your interest, check out Galina Khmeleva’s book on the subject, which we keep among our other lace-knitting books.
Come by the shop to pick up a copy of Knitting Traditions and plan your next project. See you there!
