Here is a list of knitting books by authors other than me that can take you on an armchair tour of the world. Even if you don’t plant to knit lace in all of these styles, you will enjoy the history and stories about the knitters and their traditions. They’re not all in English, but they all include lots of photos and charts.
Knitting For Victory will examine, in a series of essays, the role the Production Corps played in supporting our military and aiding our allied forces during WWI and WWII. The book will also include twenty-five knitting patterns inspired by military issued designs from both World Wars.
