Knit & Run: Free PDFs

Just for you, crafty kittens longing for some knitting know-how, a link to a FREE pdf copy of a repro of a 1940s booklet showing and telling "HOW TO KNIT"! It even includes a free pattern for a simple project
ENJOY!











I've got several more 30s Stitchcraft magazines which I hope to scan for you once I get my scanner up and running again...even if you don't knit, you may find the images as swoon-worthy as I find them!!

Ooo, I really do wish I could knit. I can get my head around crocheting but i'm afraid knitting goes over my head!

I've been meaning to scan my rather small collection of vintage knitting patterns for a while, now! The only frustrating thing (as a total beginner) is trying to find the right yarn. It's difficult to find a decent range of colours in anything but 8ply.

If I wasn't already doing tatting for my Miss-ion May, I'd certainly be digging out my nanna knitbag to have another go at this. Saved just for the time when I can - thank you for sharing these!
