People have been sending vintage photos of knitting to me on FB, so I was curious where they all came from all of a sudden, and I found this book. Of course I bought it! One does not even need to ask.
The author, Barbara Levine, has been collecting Vintage knitting photos for over 25 years, even though she herself is not a knitter, and many of the photos come from her personal collection. She calls herself a knitting watcher, and her mother was a knitter, though she does not have a single photo of her mother knitting.
The photos range from the past 100+ years once photography was more popular. They show both genders, and all ages.
This book would make a great little gift or stocking stuffer for any knitter. It will be kept out in the Living Room for perusing at my house.
I found this photo to be especially funny, as I have a hair appointment tomorrow, and I am known for always knitting while sitting in the chair!
It was really enjoyable looking through this book, but it also made me sad. I have been knitting since I was 7. I do not know of a single photo of me knitting. Too late to get that back. Have someone take pictures of you while you do your craft.
