A Stitch In Time Volume 2
Vintage Knitting Patterns 1930-1959
By Susan Crawford and Jane Waller
This breathtaking book takes you on a journey through knitting pattern history from 1930 to 1959. This 400 page treasury contains 80 stunning, classic patterns for women, carefully chosen to offer the knitter the best of design from each period, alongside a thoughtfully balanced selection of projects; from beginner to advanced; cardigans to sweaters; dresses to hats; stocking stitch to cable and from fair isle to lace.
With the patterns chronologically arranged the book also acts as a historical insight into this golden age of knitwear design.
Both the original and a re-written, updated and multi-sized adaption of each pattern is included, with beautiful full colour images, authentically styled and photographed. Additional information explaining vintage fit and finishing complete this inspiring publication. A wide range of sizes are included from 28-60 inches.
This truly amazing book is for all knitters, young and old, of all abilities. It affords the opportunity not just to knit, but to knit a piece of the past and create an heirloom of the future.

A Stitch In Time Photoshoot on Film!
At one of the recent photoshoots for A Stitch in Time Volume 2, one of Charlie's friends at university who is also studying film, kindly offered to video the day and then turn it into a short film for us. Scott Willis, our wonderful film maker, travelled down from Edinburgh on the day of shooting in March and spent the day quietly filming us. He has since spent many hours editing the footage into a marvellous visual treat of the day.
The two models appearing in the film are the wonderful Theodora Burrow and fabulous Lola Valentine. The hair and make up artist is Catherine-Elizabeth who can do the most amazing hair I've ever seen. Others present are myself, Charlie, Gavin and Inny.
Thank you to Scott once again for a fantastic production.
