B is for Purl: A Brief History of the Knitting Pattern with Franklin Habit
In the beginning, there was knitting; and it was good. Then came knitting books, and they were good. Except when they weren’t. In this lighthearted, lavishly illustrated talk, learn about where, when and how the first printed knitting patterns appeared; hear the stories of the pioneering women who made their fortunes catering to the first generations of leisure needleworkers; marvel at spectacular examples of primordial errata; and experience the many joys (and otherwise) of bringing nineteenth-century designs to life.
