We are writing today to ensure and remind readers that the November meeting is NEXT week, November 10. Also, to whet your appetite for our meeting. We share:
KNITTING FOR MY COUNTRY
presented by Historian, Mary Ann Colopy
Knitting Historian Mary Ann Colopy returns to the Guild to discuss knitting during times of war. You may remember her from last year and how we enjoyed her presentation so that we’ve asked her back. Please see below a pattern from days of WW1. This pattern and directions allow us to consider knitting over the years, how knitting has obviously changed but in some aspects, remained the same. Wristlets aka fingerless gloves? Old concept, new name?
The directions are right in the newspaper clipping. “This one has the virtues of the original document being easy to read and having easily understood knitting directions. I will be sharing links to patterns in my talk next week, as well,” explains Mary Ann.
