7 Historical Photos of People Knitting

In the era of social media, photos are all pretty much digital. But for some of us, we may remember photos B.S.(Before Social Media). Don’t get me wrong, I love Facebook and Instagram (where you can find all my pretty photos) but there was something truly special about the process of capturing a photo on film and sending it into a shop to get printed. The anticipation while waiting to get your pictures back was so exciting.

Personally, I love candid photos; I enjoy seeing people truly being in their element. That’s why I’m so fond of People Knitting: A Century of Photographs, by Barbara Levine. Barbara combines my appreciation for great photography and knitting in this vintage collection of people knitting throughout history. She showcases lovely candids of people knitting and enjoying life, and also staged photos of people with their knitting, showing us just how prevalent knitting was back then.

Welcome to Roselle Tee Knit-Along (KAL)!

It’s time for the spring knit-along!!! I am so excited to start another KAL on my Ravelry group. There will be tons of teaching and fun, prizes and a great garment! This garment, the Roselle Tee, is totally reversible so it’s like getting TWO tops for the price of one (actually three, but more on that in a second).

As always, there will be HOURS of video tutorials, and modification documents to help you every step of the way.

After May 20 the KAL – sweater class versions (with all the how tos, video tutorials, and modification notes) will be $16. So get it now, knit it now or later and SAVE!
