"Knitting Vintage" is a great read, it's filled with 30 knitting projects inspired by period fashions. What I love most, is that it provides key themes, popular designers, illustrations and mood board inspiration for each project and decade. It's loaded with tons of information, a mix of vintage fashion history with very detailed knitting directions. It even provides resources on where to source all the materials needed. Each project calls for modern materials but encourages the reader to use vintage accessories and notions. The designer reinvents each vintage pattern for a more modern appeal, which goes hand and hand with our philosophy here at Borough Vintage....I definitely plan on trying my hand at knitting this winter, good thing this book has various skill levels. Wish me luck!!!
