January/February 2010 is our fourth annual special historical knitting issue!

You'll discover fascinating knitters from the past--England's Miss Money and Latvia's Jette U?ne, to name just two, as well as learning about: the Circling Purls pattern that was used as early as the seventeenth century, what people were knitting in medieval London, why theater costume designers love knitting, and how magic mittens saved a lobster boat.

Special projects, each with its own story to tell, include the three-dimensional "Birch Mittens"; socks based on ones made between 1620 and 1640; "Offering Mitts," with their intriguing shape; and knitted and fulled "Compass Mittens."

Plus--a new stitch pattern from Barbara Walker, author of the beloved Treasury of Knitting Patterns books. Do enjoy this special issue, which connects today's knitting and knitters with those of the past!
