This weekend was crazy. I went to the Madrona Fiber Arts retreat and took a 2 day class on Victorian Knitting. It was fun. We learned how to read and interpret English from patterns in the 19th century. The patterns were from Weldon’s Practical Needlework. I must have these books. They are reprints of patterns and crafts women did in the 19th century.
My new obsession is learning about twined or two-ended knitting. The knitting is so gorgeous. Will have to figure it out.
Such a tiring weekend. Once I get my Weldon’s books I will be ready to live out my dream of knitting more victorian works.
