Warm Up Your Knitting Needles

A new retro knitting book has just been published. Retro Knits: Cool Vintage Patterns for Men, Women, and Children from the 1900s through the 1970s edited by Kari Cornell and Jean Lampe features...well, cool vintage patterns for men, women, and children from the 1900s through the 1970s. There's over 50 patterns collected here, along with vintage photographs of the designs. The book is selling for $16.47 on Amazon. Judging from the cover, I'm guessing the styles in here lean towards classic and timeless rather than knitting while eating grandma's green brownies.

Hi, I work for www.shopyarn.com. Part of my job is to search blogs to find the latest books and shops throughout the U.S.

On shopyarn.com we are going to add patterns and other knitting related books and would like reviews about them. I saw your blog and would like to ask permission to feature the following quote on our site.
