I am a civil war reenactor and have gotten totally hooked on historic patterns and knitting. On the web there are a bunch of us. Could you start a folder on, say, "historic knitting" for us afficionados of past centuries of knitting???

Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right.

Oooooh, that's a very good suggestion! I'll put it at the top of my list. Thanks Polly!

I really like that idea. I am obsessed at the moment with recreating a scarf I saw on the TV programme 'Foyle's war'. I assume that it is either a WWII scarf or a clever wardrobe person's choice that looked about right for the period. I have tried to trawl the web for a woman's WWII period scarf and not had much success, so a historic knitting KR folder would be fab.

Oh yes, I like that idea too - I laboured long and hard over a traditional Cornish gansey for a friend with Cornish roots - I'm plucking up the courage to try one in the round on long dpns but that might be a bit too ambitious - I know they used 'knitting sticks' to support their work - does anyone know if they are still made anywhere?

Best wishes

Jane

PS Sorry Clara if we are pre-empting the folder's set up - just very keen!

How do.
Your topic suggestion, Polly, is one I would not have tho't of - how interesting it will be to learn more about the history of knitting via the garments that were made.
Scarf-o-matic, I loved "Foyle's War" - the costumes were wonderful in that show. Love PBS!

Another suggestion.. and maybe it is here already and I just haven't found it. How about a recipe spot? I have some excellent recipes for the holidays that I would love to share with everyone.

There's a "Things We Do Besides Knitting" section...
