Book of the Month – August, 2019

The Book of the Month was presented by Mariellen Boss. She looked through her knitting books and picked up the ones she has used a lot in the past. One of the books is a Coats & Clark’s book, Book no 192, on Socks, Mittens and Accessories. This book is still relevant today and she still uses the book for knitting socks. In the earlier years copy machines were not available and marks were made in the book as can be seen in one of the pictures below.

She also talked about how Elizabeth Zimmerman changed the knitting world with her book Knitting Without Tears and making knitting accessible to everyone.
