Vintage Knitting

Recently, I’ve been visiting my local thrift stores searching for vintage knitting magazines.  The Coats & Clark’s Books along with Woman’s Day and Today’s Woman Knit-It, to name a few, offer an archival of knitting history.  A record of fashion, yarn and knitting stitches with no name.  Stitches described only by the relationship between the knitter, needles and yarn necessary to achieve the stitch.  Is it necessary to assign a “name” to people, place or things?  Is the stitch any less important without a name?  For me, it’s about the visual appearance and integrity of the stitch.

I’m looking forward to my adventures on twitter.  If you tweet, I look forward to following you.  https://twitter.com/sticksagogo
