More Than A Knitting Book


I have had this book pre-paid and on order for many months and my excitement peaked yesterday when it arrived. Even last night while tossing and turning in bed my mind was often drawn back to the beautiful patterns and styling.


It features patterns from the 30s, 40s and 50s with original photos and new styled versions.
I even love the heavy pages that have a vintage old feel to them.

The book also gives insight and instruction for authentic finishing and attachments like knitted buttons etc.


The book also gives instruction for tweaking the styles to suit different body types and challenges like "spare tyres" and "broad shoulders" or "ample bosoms".

The patterns remind me so much of the yarns that my grandmother used and the patterns she loved.


And that's not all....
Extra goodies arrived too as an extra thank you for waiting patiently for the book to be published.
Little Jenny Wren (also a big fan of Susan Crawford books) found this video of the behind the scenes making of "A Stitch In Time Vol II". It will give you a delicious little taster.

  1. Oh I'd love to have a go at that pattern in the last 2 pics, I don't think I would wear it, but that pattern just looks like it would be great to knit.
