A brief history of the sweater, from Liverpool knitwear designer and fashion historian, Susan Crawford; plus a sweater every year, from guest writer, M Lynn Yu.
Special thanks this week to M Lynn Yu, for writing and reading her beautiful essay, and to Susan Crawford, for spearheading a worthy project, and for taking the time to speak with me this week.
There is still time to take the poll, if you haven’t already done so. Please tell me what knitting thing you most want to learn. And if one of those things was the moebius cast on, check out Cat Bordi’s excellent video of the technique on YouTube.
As always, you are welcome to leave comments here, or comments and/or voicemail in the Cast On Drop.
Wardrobe Refashion offers great inspiration for make do or make over projects.
