I would love to get this community up and going again. I have a bunch of knitting books I've acquired and will start uploading them as the semester goes on.
I'm a firm believer that if something becomes public domain it should be shared freely and for free. That is why I am posting the following links to vintage patterns that the copyright has expired and are now public domain. Don't buy vintage patterns in PDF form(or email) if you can get them for free!Snood Knitting PatternSnood with Matching Bag Pattern
While surfing the net for sites about vintage needle sizes and converting them to modern sizes I came across the following knitting patterns. If we weren't sending troops to the Middle East I would love to knit these up for our boys over seas! I even found a perfect olive drab wool yarn!Knitting Patterns from WWIII might need to knit these up for my husband for work...
i'm looking to buy or make a french screen to separate all of my crafts (sewing and knitting) from the rest of my living room. Does anyone have an idea as to where I can get one? or a tutorial on making one? doesn't have to be fancy!thanks!
Hi Happy Valentines Day Everyone. I just wanted to share that I've started selling vintage patterns on etsy. I only have about 40 things posted but there is much much more to come. Right now I mostly have 60's - 70's era stuff listed but I have some that go back to the 20's and 30's. I'm only selling orginals no reproductions in my shop. I hope you stop by.

Hi,I've recently started knitting again after several years after discovering some of my Great Aunt's old patterns.I would dearly love to knit one of the underwear patterns I have, however I have no idea how thick the silk yarn needs to be. Does anyone know what grade silk yarn used to be? (2ply, 4ply, thinner?)Thank you very much in advance.Elbly
