Looking for a Knitter who is up for a Challenge
This rather plain book is one of my special treasures. The blue slipcover was made by someone in the past, I guess they also realised what an interesting book this one is.
It is full, cover to cover, but not just with recipes. About half of the book is dedicated to knitting patterns, written out in longhand and without the modern abbreviations. Practically double Dutch to me. Pot holders were about the limit of my abilities, which is a shame because my mother was an extremely good knitter.
I wondered whether there could be a knitter out there, someone who would enjoy the challenge of trying out one of the patterns and seeing how it knits. Just out of historical interest and for fun, no pressure.
Baby's Night Cap
Ladies Under Cap
Open Knit Cuffs
Gothic Pattern for ? quilt
Border for Shetland Shawl
Frill for Neck
Gentleman's Mittens for under Gloves...
and so on.
I have no idea whether they would work, but they do sound interesting.
So, if anyone who knows a knitter/knitting blogger who may be interested in trying one of them out could you message me here?
