Regular price $7.99
PieceWorks 12th annual Historical Knitting issue focuses on handknitted socks and stockings from around the world. We begin with a fascinating and in-depth account of handknitted stockings from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries with Sylvie Odstrčilová. Mimi Seyferth details the knitting that provides much-needed income for women in Afghanistan. In addition to socks and stockings, Lea Stern tells the moving story of one small green sweater made for a beloved granddaughter that survived the Holocaust in Poland. The stories will leave you with a full heart, and the five included projects will fill your needles as you re-create these historical socks and stockings. Join us for a truly amazing glimpse into knittings rich, varied, and long history with the January/February 2018 issue of PieceWork.
